I bought this with KinderKrisp and Red Rome Beauty. Looking for a more of a tart apple to go along with the sweeter KinderKrisp. It was another tree that pollinated with Red Rome Beauty.

One of my favorite apples.
Thank you for carrying the Gravenstein apple.
I planted one at my previous address. The tree was very vigorous and started producing the 3rd year. It has a variable harvest, which frustrates some, but I look forward to because I have apples to use over a 4-6 week period. Great apple for pies or eating out of hand. Which to me, is a perfect apple! :)

Keeping my fingers crossed!
My favorite pie apple appears to be struggling it's first year. Possibly due to a late spring cold snap, but I have high hopes it will turn the corner in the next few week. Thanks for asking.
