First taste of what I suspect to be Twenty Ounce apple: 3" high x 3 - 3 1/2" wide, heavily striped fruit. 14 Brix, fat brown seeds; nice juicy bite with good balance of sweet to tart. Will find a way to bake with it soon.
Earwigs alerted me to its ripeness. They like it, too - about 20 infesting three apples. I will cover it with footies in future to keep insects out. Might have to paint its lower trunk with Tanglefoot or whatever it is called to slow them down.
Or get ducks.
This came by accident - had ordered something quite different. Two websites note Twenty Ounce is also called Blessing. Might look at it that way…
