    I bought a bench graft of Redfield and found after a while it would be a spreading tree. Persuaded a neighbor to allow me to re-plant it in their larger space. It established roots slowly and bloomed mid-August! Then it set 17 debut fruits. Clearly self-fertile. I can hardly wait for the tree to gain enough size to retain a crop.

    Thanks to another apple enthusiast, I tasted a single Redfield last year. It was mostly red or pink inside; taste had serious pucker to it - due to acid and tannin, with some sweetness and interesting flavor. I would like to try it in both baking and cider when I find enough to use. Once that is done, perhaps I might need to give it a score of five apples instead of four.
