Owner's comments

I got hold of some free scion wood and I grafted it on a cut-back golden delicious apple tree. So I used the golden delicious as an the saint Edmund's pippin. There were some apples last year (2019) but they were eaten by insects and birds. This year I have cut the tree drastically back in order to get the right vase shape I like for apple trees. I have never tasted these apples...I can wait, I have other fruit trees which do bear fruits.
