" The Magnum Bonum apple tree was commonly found in southern nurseries up until the 1930’s. The Magnum Bonum apples were originally raised by Squire Kinney, in North Carolina. According to apple historian, Lee Calhoun, few southern apples have received more praise in the past than Magnum Bonum apples. The fruit is medium-size, red over yellow. Tender, juicy, aromatic white flesh inside beautiful red/yellow skin. An early bearer widely adapted for the south. Excellent dessert apple and a good keeper.

I dont blame you the shipping prices have really went up. Inflation has turned $5 - $25 fruit trees into 5 times the old prices.
