My brand new grafts of Sweet 16 were the LEAF tissue most damaged by scab
this year in my plantings. Connection? FYI, I didn't spray this year.
Should have, but I figured incorrectly that late freeze decided for me.

This year I got my first good crop from many of my apple trees, and also my
lone pear tree.
Almost all of my Sweet 16 apples have a simiilar problem. The skin is
slightly bumpy or pitted, sort of like an orange in a way. The flesh has
dark areas and is sometimes a little bitter, and not crisp, but sometimes
Does anyone have any ideas what the problem with them might be? I have
looked in many of my books and references with no luck, although I seem to
have a tendency to miss the obvious sometimes.
Thanks for any help.
