I can supply you with ample Kandil Sinap scionwood this winter if you want
to go that route. (At no charge, of course.) My tree is from the old
Grootendorst Southmeadow antique apple operation which I think is out of
business. It produces the classic, beautiful Kandil Sinap apple. Have some
pictures of them if I could ever get my son's scanner working to get them on
the net. It's a pretty healthy and disease free tree. Likes to grow up
rather than out.
Wish I had a good, comprehensive, well-illustrated apple book too. Rgds,
Don Yellman, Great Falls, VA
