About this Gravenstein Apple tree
Bonney Lake, WA, United States
Gravensteins usually grow in abundance here in the Puget Sound Region, but we're getting ready to replace this tree. It is extremely susceptible to disease, pests, no matter what method of control we use, and is NOT a keeper at all. It makes a great pie (and cider, applesauce, etc), but I like to mix a variety of apples when baking. This ripenes in mid August, much earlier than all our other apple trees, so I have to buy apples if I want a variety, since these won't keep until later in the fall.
