Season records for this tree
1.5m / 5.0ft high Tree had at least 5 to 8 blossoms in April but we got a hard spring freeze that killed essentially all apple blossoms in the area so no apples developed.
1.5m / 5.0ft high 2.0m / 6.7ft wide Pruned branches that were too low or angled into the tree. Still working on creating a good framework for future fruiting.
1.0m / 3.3ft high 1.5m / 5.0ft wide Pruned branches that were too low or angled into the tree. Still working on creating a good framework for future fruiting. Had terrible fire blight in the area so it was good that the tree did not bloom.
1.5m / 5.0ft high Semi-dwarf tree arrived on April 28, 2017 as 1-year-old bare root. No side branches. Planted on April 30 after waiting out a spring snow storm and freezing temperatures. Trimmed top of tree slightly to create a solid cut and angle growth in direction desired. Noticed the first buds starting to emerge on May 8, 2017, about 1 week after planting the tree. Had perfect baby tree weather - soaking rains interspersed with warm, sunny days, but then had a hail storm and several inches of snow on May 17
