Hi all! First timer here with huge fruit aspirations but little real experience - hoping for some YAs or NAYs or other identification advice as I try to narrow down the identification of a mystery apple tree I inherited. 2018 has been its first big year and I have plenty of samples to study.
I believe it’ is nearly ripe at end of july/early august which is probably the biggest clue.
Other “clues”: falls off tree easily (even before ripeness), browns quickly, small amount of russet around stem
Flavor (near ripe): nicely tart, good amount of juice, medium crunchiness. Made a nice little pie
Thanks! Looks like there a couple different varieties of Gravensteins so maybe I’ve got a red one?? So far I like them pretty well. I don’t think they are at peak ripeness yet, maybe another week if they stay on the darn tree…
