I don't think I've posted much (tanis cuff/ tanistanis hotmail same as tanisgrif

was to collect all the info I could about propagating & possibly patenting it, so I
could tell owner all options available & most practical methods, and probable
time-line. Also, publicizing too much about the tree starts the time-window of when
the patenting process must start.

in a marshy region where other apple trees hardly flower. This combo of phenomonal
roots AND good fruit will have to be tested, to prove whether it is actually a
chance seedling, not someone's long-lost topwork. Also note this is in s.WI-- z4
more realisticly than z5-- which beats the winter hardiness of other flood-tol
