alos pick off leaves.
OKAY REREAD THROUGH. (scroll though)
and re read again (thanks Apple Nut all I wrote I guess Was a waste below this post in a way
, but in a way maybe not if people wanted to experiment cross breeding)
Do you know what the altitude is in this area
(maybe a wasted reply below , but maybe others could cross breed some of these types species within each other.)
THESE people are dedicated to growing apples , and that’s great
What I am thinking see all the old data about 2 different genera being crossed
talked about recently was a Mexican hawthorn
it is acidic why not cross one off those
(with a Caribbean Doresett apple Low chill hours )
I am thinking better yet use a red delicious lower acid . and back cross
, but that was my thought originally.
red D . X Mexican Hawthorn = c ( C offspring)
c (which is the offspring ) X Red D. (as a back Cross )
I do not know much about apples( Link below).,
but read a lot about intergeneric cross breeds
between 2 species (pear genus Pyrus X mountain Ash berry genus Sorbus )= Shipova
(and other cross breeds between species (ingtergeneric )
within the rosaceae
like firethorn Pyracantha in old 100 year old info online a few years ago
so I believe A distant low heat unit tree could be crossed , and crossed back.
maybe some of those southern apples would be better all along
