      We have a 3 year old tree. Got a few apples last year near the top. The apples were perfect. I have 5 other variety trees, none of the apples were as disease free and pest free, and they were so high, I couldn't even reach to spray them! I will likely get more of these. i thought they were yummy, crisp and semi sweet.

      We're now growing about 100 trees. Very attractive fruit. A nice bite. Seems to store well so far. Flavor is not bad but doesn't do that much for me either.
