Owner's comments

The crimson crisp just exist as an graft on my mother tree. It has not produced any fruits. Some other grafts on my mother tree do produce crops. This might be one which takes it's time to mature in order to produce some apples. I received this scion wood for free and since I do not toss a present, I grafted it upon a rubinola, which serves as my mother tree, meaning it is my graft bank, It does not grow vigorously on my mother tree.

    I have this as a graft on my 'mother tree' meaning it is a graft bank for all my grafts. This year I am excited, because the crimson crisp is blossoming fully! open blossom is 99%.
