I understand there is now software which can be downloaded and used to ID
apples from descriptions. For a couple reasons, I can't use it, so I have
to pick the brains of NAFEXlisters instead.
Nov 14 I collect apples from an old tree (not ancient) which had half its
apples on the tree & half on the ground. (This is rather late, for this
area.) Similar to Gold.Del. in appearance & flavor & texture. A bit more
crisp, & flavor had more character & some tartness-- especially in the
slightly greener apples picked from the tree. Skins are more glossy than
Gold.Del., and any red on them is in small spots, rather than the occasional
I didn't take the time to study leaves for disease signs, nor to find the
tree's current care-taker to learn the recent care regimen nor history.
This is the time-consuming part, and I figure if it is a common known
variety I'll just skip it.
Thanks for any ideas.
