Owner's comments

Apple tree bought from the aldi supermarket. one year old maiden, only to flower this year (2017). Ill let it produce a tiny crop of fruits for a taster. This tree has nice scented light pink flowers. This small jonagold tree is kept in a container, with excellent quality soil.

Season records for this tree

    Spring blossom: 4 May
    I have a little jonagold in a container of 20 L. It is covered in blossom. This little tree is on a m27 I think. It stays small for several year now. Last year it gave a crop, but the birds ate all apples. I did not have a taster. This year I will make changes, so I get to taste these apples.

    Got the tree from the aldi supermarket. I want to know what the real taste of this apple is, if not picked too early like the supermarkets do.
