First apple of '22

Consumed my first ripe apple of the year: Pristine. Not bad. Last year was the first time bearing for my two trees, and I was so impressed I ordered three more. I must say they were better last year: larger and crunchier. We have had a very trying year what with my accident and subsequent neglect. Then we had no rain, very high temps, now over twelve inches in less than two weeks. I still am very impressed with this apple. It is prone to water core, but for personal consumption that’s negligible. I never had a summer apple I liked until this one.


My favorite too. They are not grown in France.

Can you grow one?

Can’t get the tree or scion.

Behold the first crop of Williams pride off my four year old trees. I know they are small, but I am utterly delighted to have gotten apples at all. Cotton root rot took out the other Williams pride tree, among others.

Kind of tough, but had a fresh sweet taste.
