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.

This tree is doing very well, thriving. It has notably grown and I believe it will produce within a couple of years.

We were not sure !Serendipity!
Then the rains came and the little tree now has green leaves and seems to be thriving after it's bout with a hungry dear. We caged the tree and many many months later we have green leaves ! Thank you for producing such durable plants and trees!!!

Baldwin - a great apple for pies.
I've found the Baldwin a firm, tart apple, just the way we like them in pies. They keep almost all winter in a cold garage. The tree arrived wrapped in paper, was planted within a couple days of arrival. Transplanted it in the fall so that it would get more even light all day. Survived the transplant and is growing really well at this time. The tree has almost doubled in size since being planted. Hoping for a good crop in a few years.

Growing Fantastic
I purchased a Baldwin Apple in 2016, the stock I received was about 3 ft. tall. The tree grew to over 6 ft tall last year and it was one of the first that leafed out this spring. It had multiple blooms on it that I pinched off this year. It's growing fantastic. I expect it to be producing as soon as I believe it can support the fruit as it has doubled in height and produced blooms in it's first year.

Favorite For Cider
We love this apple for cider making purposes. Everybody likes our cider! I don't think this apple freezes well. Can be used in pies and eating fresh. Tends to overbear, and requires a lot of thinning.

tree seems to be doing well in it's 2nd season in the ground. Very good variety of apple, so looking forward to it bearing in a few more years.
