hallo Ginda,

very nice, how you are watching Europe...

At Germany 100 % of Apple- and Pear-trees are grafts.
Only few special Plums and some Cherries are seedlings.
But your observation would be the same at Germany:
Almost all private orchards would have many different "ugly" apples with 
often "ugly" leaves too.
With pears the same! Now-a-days no spraying at private gardens usually.
The typical apple at Germany may have or has spots and marks!
And many different tastes. But all are from (old) cultivars not from 
Only apples from most fruit farmers are uniform and without any spots.
Apples at stores are probably almost worldwide all the same: more or 
less tasteless cultivars
One of the only exceptions are e.g. Braeburn and Boskoop...

very slow Apple rootstocks at Germany with different resistance:
