Owner's commentsMy trees are documented to have been planted in 1887, and are one property over from the actual spot where Nathaniel Griffith and Luther Burbank introduced the first Gravensteins in America. (also in 1887) Therefore, I believe mine to be among the first seedlings, shared from neighbor to neighbor. These old trees, which have battled neglect, encroaching Oaks, and lack of light for 120 years, now resemble some weird growth from another planet, more than they resemble apple trees. Still, they produce green/yellow apples, 5" in diameter, and absolutely flawless, year after year! I'm so proud of them!
