Owner's comments

This tree was planted within a short time of the cox's tree, because the cox's has to have another tree close by to pollenate. It did produce a couple of blossoms this first spring, clusters. Two of the blossoms appeared to have baby apples on them, but later fell off. It may have been due to a sprinkler hitting them, I'm not sure. Maybe next year it will do better.
