Owner's comments

The Liberty is one of the varieties on my 4-in-1 apple tree (the other three varieties are Red Gravenstien, Honeycrisp, and Chehalis. We have 5 apple trees in our home orchard - the other four include Gravenstien, Honeycrisp, Braeburn, and Am and (so we get duplicate Gravenstien and Honeycrisp). The Liberty branch of this 4-in-1 tree has been the slowest to produce. This last year it gave us maybe 20 apples. But they were delicious!
