Owner's comments

Grafted 1 Hauer Pippin onto tree in April 2012. Also training limbs to a spiral upward shape. Another 2 grafts 1 each of Hauer Pippin & Fameuse making 3 total by 2013, all look to be growing at this time, 1st Hauer Pippin has fruit buds. I'm guessing this tree is happy here, will blossom this year (2013) and also the graft of the 2012 Hauer Pippin. 13 apples on tree this year, 2 of them being the Hauer Pippins, which are looking to ripen later than the Cox's. This tree now has Grenadine, Pink Parfait, Roxbury Russet, Rubinette, Hauer Pippin, & Snow as grafts (2014).
