Yes sweet, but more like good honey than a candy or soda. Texture is not so
crisp as many people like. It also has a rougher skin-- but not russetted--
which can be points against on taste-tests. I have 2 trees probably Tolman;
one had a more complex 'gourmet' flavor but didn't keep as well as the other
which isn't quite as rich a flavor. And this 2nd one is getting sweeter in
Both my Tolmans have good branch angles naturally, and have better disease
resisitance than average. Bore w/o supplimental irrigation in a drought
year (Antanovka on light soil w/ silt subsoil.)
Try before you plant a tree, and store some a while, but if you grow a tree
it will be in the 'grower friendly' group. (Intervention required for
decent fruit, but not tree health.)
