    Tree produced 50 apples this year. Could only harvest about 20-25 as some wonderful neighbors decided to pick half of them, probably under the cover of darkness, for the second year in a row. $10 says they had no idea what kind of apples these are. 6’ fence for next year.

    Interesting how a tree bearing for the first year with 22-24 apples on it which is planted by a street with numerous pedestrians can suddenly only have 8 apples left (mid-august). Squirrels were probably not the pest in question.
