I have a couple very old Baldwin trees, and I don't know how much longer they will last. These apples make great pies !

Baldwin is for the best apple pie apple!
My grandfather, my father and I have Baldwin apples; it is my favorite for apple pie, stores well for apple pies at Christmas. Bears heavy one year and lightly the next then heavy again. Fruit is solid and tart. 4-5 years to wait usually, but my brother's got a few in the third year.
