Positive cavalrymedic On Apr 18, 2007, cavalrymedic from Newberry, FL (Zone 8b) wrote:

A great backyard tree in my area. Grows quickly and is sturdy. Apples are smallish, but very tasty. They do not keep long though. My tree is on a dwarfing rootstock, but has reached 15 feet in 7 years. Blooms prolifically about three times a year. The first, early bloom is in winter and sets no fruit. The secon, main bloom is in march and has an acceptable set of fruit which I have to thin in heavy years. Final bloom is in fall and sets small fruit which soon drop. Shows very little damage from pests or disease, but I have yet to tangle with Cedar Apple Rust. Is pollinated by Anna, Dorsett Golden, and a native crab apple.
