Owner's comments

This is a beautiful tree that we purchased because our daughter, who was very young at the time, wanted an apple tree and this is what she picked. It took several years for it to produce, but it was well worth the wait! There are so many apples the neighborhood children come with bags to take them home! It leans somewhat due to prevailing winds, but we love it!

    This was so much fun! We canned them, made pies and apple sauce. We supplied the neighbor with a large bag for her horses. Very juicy and sweet.
