Owner's comments

In search for my favourite apple, I bought lots of grafting wood, and of course grafted them. This year I will let this first time blossomer grow a crop of one or two apples. The tree is kept in a small container. Next year this container will be replaced with a 50 L one. I grew KOR(=Kidds Orange Red) because I'm in search of my favourite apple. This tree looks very happy and very heathy. Nice pink blossoms.

    Spring blossom: 4 May
    Grafted this tree 2 years ago, on an M9. This year it blossomed. Going to let one or two apples on the tree, to verify if this is a KOR(Kidds Orange Red) or not and to have a taster. Nice pink blossom. Don't know if blossom has a fragrance, I did not smell it.
