Owner's comments

Commercial variety , but a great apple. Black spot a problem in humid summers or with prolonged rain in spring. I try not to spray fungicides, but would get a better result if I did. Biennial cropper. Heavy crops one year, then hardly worth trying to stop the birds the next, as so little fruit.
