    I grafted my Lyman's large Summer apple from scionwood I purchased eighteen years ago from the now defunct Bear Creek Orchard in northern Washington state. I grafted it onto mark (MAC 9) rootstock. It had never flowered nor produced fruit until this year, when it bore generaously if not abundantly. The large fruit ripened yellow and fell from the tree in the last week of August, 2019. Mark rootstock imbues precoity, so this variety is definitely a laggard. This apple is delicious - sweet with noticeable acid and a pear-like flavor that lingers in the mouth. It is crunchy, juicy and aromatic. I will be grafting this "keeper" onto Geneva dwarfing rootstock this winter.
