    My family place has a nice tree which I tentatively identified as Green Sweet. I ordered a Green Sweet from Fedco Trees and they are indeed the same apple. It's a fine-tasting apple. I make wonderful green applesauce and I've just started some hard cider. I'm too lazy to spray it at all but this year I've had a bountiful crop on both trees, not much scab, not too many worm holes. The apples aren't pretty, but sort of mottled, but some are huge and you can't beat the flavor.
