Owner's comments

Only treatment is grease to trunk. Red inside fruit is very prominent and at full maturity goes all the way into core in waves/ripples. Firm fruit similar to granny smiths in texture - very juicy. Good eating apples also dont go mushy in pies and add fabulous colour. Potentially leaving property next year so intend to take some cuttings and grow some more of this tree where ever i move to. Photos to follow
