[NAFEX] Apples That Bear On One Year Wood

The late Professor Elwyn Meader once sent me a red flesh apple from
Nels Hansen which is probably a selection of Malus Niedzwetzkyana.
One striking feature is it's ability to bear on one year wood. Not
just a flower or a fruit here and there, but clusters at every bud.
Since it's from Siberia, I assume that ability is a reproductive
strategy to allow it to bear quickly if a cold winter kills back limbs.
Has anyone noted this trait in other apple varieties or species?
