Me too, last winter.
I realized I had gotten pretty wrapped up in what to choose and said a simple prayer, "OK, make of this what You will." Got a pile of scions from folks who wanted to trade. Nice to know I have something others find interesting.
Then I grafted five pieces, including Goldrush, which I had written off as impossible until this forum gave me the overwhelming encouragement to try it. It took, twice. Then grafted Redfield because a spot came open (6' tall and 4' branches!) and Connell Red (Fireside sport) which I had initially no intention of using here. Wow! Connell is vigorous. It now stands on D'Arcy Spice, a small vigor tree and is already 37 inches tall since the graft was made on Memorial Day. Loads of branches and very healthy.
So now I have 8 cultivars I've never tasted before growing on the property, with every hope they will prove useful, enjoyable and instructive for myself and the people I love.
Maybe in the group lurks a best tasting apple? (Lamb Abbey Pearmain? Hunt Russet?)
