Owner's comments

with the exception of this winter (more cold temps in 30's or belwo than in last 15 yrs) bought this to remember my Dad (from Va) and also to pollinate other apple trees in the family orchard. Most of my apples are not in your registry. This tree also came from Century Farm Orchards in North Carolina. Excellent shape and already had some buds on it.
