Owner's comments

Both of my apple trees are Fuji. Both purchased at a nursery. However, I have grafted many varieties on them both now. The seedling rootstock tree is in the ground, and I am growing it as a pyramid in the style of Thomas Rivers, the famous English horticuturist of Rivers Nursery. The other is on a dwarf rootstock, and is pruned as a miniture fruit bush. This tree is in a Rootmaker grow bag in a home mixed Peat-Lite. Interestingly, it is putting on Fuji fruit at the end of August. The other varieties have not yet flowered as the trees are immature. I frequently graft on new varieties, and attend the annual Cal Poly CRFG scion exchange. At the moment I can recall; White Winter Pairmain, Anders Apple, Tropic Beauty, Pinkerton.................
