Owner's comments

This is a graft on my mother tree(graft bank) and is not producing any fruits. The mother tree is a rubinola a very vigorous apple tree indeed. Internet description about the norfolk royal say this is an apple with a good taste. I want to experience for myself what a 'good' taste is. Just curious. Some grafts on the mother tree produce a crop, so if norfolk royal produces good tasting apples, and I like them, I will graft several on a root stock.
