Owner's comments

Local nusery, I have only had this 1 season. This will get trained into a apple fence with others. Although these seem to be a fairly small sized apple, they pack a lot of flavor (tart & sweet). I would say refreshing.

    Spring blossom: 29 March
    3/21/2013 the 1st blossom has opened, full bloom on 3/29/2013. Staring to get some dropped apples on 7/20/2013, let rest for a week and am eating them. Tree is still pretty young, but I am glad to be able to taste these refreshing smallish apples. Nice balance of fruity and acid taste. Possibly not completely ripe, but I like the taste anyway, and you can also smell their fragrance as they ripen.
