     Re: my comments on the accuracy of Crawford's book.  Maiden Blush is not a tip bearer, nor is Crimson Beauty.  Or, they bear as you've described,
mostly on spurs.
     Re: the "tip bearing habit" of Gala, Golden, etc., these fruits are typically much smaller as flower buds are not mature.  Or, the largest fruit
comes from 2-3 year spurs.
