Owner's comments

We do not spray, this apple will get scab in our area. This is not a good tree for our area, not enough heat to ripen. Only summer of 2009 was warm enough and the apples were actually good to eat. All other years, they remain rock hard into October and get fed to the horses or sheep or chickens. Not recommended
