Owner's comments

This tree is located 5 ft. northeast of a large maple stump. This tree is doing a little better than it's sister (we have two Haralsons). It had a dozen apples on it - only one has fallen off and that was a couple of weeks ago. I'm not sure when I wrote the above, perhaps July 2011. A few more apples fell off in August. I set them aside to ripen... when I cut them open, the core was black and spreading into the fruit. Picked the rest of the apples in early Oct0ber - no black centers. They did have quite a few worm trails within them - no worms - and the clean pieces left were delicious and plenty enough to make a chunky apple pie.
