Tree continues to put out some impressive growth. Pixie Crunch has flowered almost continuously through the end of July. I know have about 10 or so apples at various stages of development (small grape sized to small plum sized fruit.)

Experienced second bloom in May, first bloom was in February. Several fruit set at that point, all but one pinched. Picked this last one too early, very dense and not sweet.

Received winter of 2015 as a 2-3 year bare-root tree, about 3-4 feet in height. The tree has grown significantly and has developed many branches which must be trimmed back this winter. Hoping for my first harvest this coming year!
