There are 4 in 1, hard to decide what to get, because you never tried before this kind. I am looking for sour kind of apples, but most of them are sweet .

Hubby thought this one was interesting and wanted to give it a try. I like the idea that the apples will ripen over a staggered period of time. I'm hoping some of them are good keepers for the root cellar.

I wanted something different for a location near the house that I can watch every day. We'll have to see how well these apples do with pies.

How do I prune 4 in 1?
Maggie P on Apr 23, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Prune to keep each variety's marked branch in check with the others. Since there are several varieties on one tree, one may try to dominate the rest, so just make sure they are all kept about the same length to maintain balance.
What average height are the buds grafted on above the rootstock?
Megan L on Mar 26, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Typically, the lowest bud is located 18-22 inches above the rootstock.

4on1 antique apple
So far I am happy with my apple tree! it looks very good this spring. It has a few blossoms on it. I will be happy in 2017 when I may get some apples! So far so good!

I bought this tree a few years ago, and it has had impressive growth and fruit production on two of it's grafts. The top graft is the earliest flowering and most productive, almost breaking branches in it's second season. One of the grafts took until the third season to start showing any signs of growth. The top graft has taken the majority of the plants vigor, due to it's early production, so this year I plan to cut all the fruit off early, and give the other grafts a chance to fill out and get stronger. It will be interesting to see how the tree produces when it matures, right now it seems like all four grafts are competing with each other, with one being the hog. My complaints lie in dealing with a multi graft tree, and not the quality of the product. Overall I am happy with the quality of the apples and the tree

No flower buds
I planted the tree a couple years ago with several other fruit trees. It appears very healthy and strong but I have not seen any flower buds on it yet. I am patiently waiting for this "late bloomer". All the other trees except the pears have bloomed. Perhaps they are lacking a specific nutrient?

4 in 1 apple tree
This bare root tree died from powdery mildew almost immediately after planting. I would highly recommend getting some powdery mildew killer before you order it just as a precaution. It's not that expensive, and you can get it on amazon, which is what really frustrated me. I didn't catch it in time. The 4 in 1 antique apple would have been nice tree to grow, but I noticed that for me, the grafted branches are lower than I would have liked. If it wasn't for that, and my lack of attention to the powdery mildew I would have had a great tree to grow some antique apples.

4 on 1 antique apple
The tree grew marginally the first year and didn't survive its first winter.
