Owner's comments

2nd year in the ground. The tree actually grew alot this summer. I would say it had maybe 5 blossoms his year. It was the only apple tree in its area of the yard the first year. Now there is a Dorsett Golden right across from it in it first year. That tree is looking very good for growth. It even has apples on it from a late bloom.
