Thanks Doug and Claude.
I did have a Boskoop that I got from Siloam, It was a lovely young tree
which I had high hopes for, until during a storm, a 60ft maple came
crashing down on top of it splintering it into pieces!
Unfortunately after that I got disheartened, and decided to fill the
space with a larger, locally-procured Priscilla, which is doing well so far.
Maybe I'll try a Boskoop, still it would be great to taste one before
investing (time and money) again. I believe they are particularly slow
to bear. My best friend lives in Holland, and has had them, but I am not
sure she's a big cooking apple fan.
For the Cox, I know it's not a Cox sport but I got the Reine de Reinette
thinking it would give me something similar on a tree that's hardy
enough to survive here. Maybe I am kidding myself! Haven't had any
apples from it yet so can't comment.
We do what we can! Perhaps I'll save up and buy another Boskoop after
all, If I don't fill up my last space with something else first!
Thanks again for the advice,
St. Jerome, QC
