Owner's comments

This its is 3rd year ( I think ) and this is the first time I have seen blossoms. I am excited at thought I may have a cox's apple to eat this fall,but we shall see Yesterday was this first time I had actually looked for blossoms and so far have seen two clusters, as the tree is still waking up for spring, there may be more, the date was March 27th 2010 and they were in bud not opened. The height of the tree is about 8 feet and all the limbs point straight up, I wasn't expecting such an up right skinny tree, but then I didn't know what a Cox's looked like , I am assuming this is the nature of the tree to grow this way.
