Owner's comments

This is a dwarf variety, one of 3 dwarf varieties in our residential back yard. This year (2012) the climate was hot and dry, the crop was limited to a dozen or so apples, each 2" in diameter and less. They ripened late July/early August, a deep purple/red colour. Sweet and crunchy to eat.
