Owner's comments

I bought this tree as a very small starter from Walmart of all places. It started producing fruit 6 years after planting. I don't treat the tree or apples, so we do get some worms, but it's not too bad. We lose a fair amount of apples before maturity due to birds pecking on them, some worms and storms (hail, etc.), but there is always plenty of fruit at harvest time in October.
