Gordon has been one of my favorite apples to grow over the years for both taste and production, so naturally I planted a new one at my present location. Here is the young tree on M-111 rootstock, still in training. This time of year apples can look a bit ragged in my climate because they don’t drop the majority of last year’s leaves until the end of Spring. You can see hints of some blossoms. In this climate they produce 2+ crops per year depending on the weather and your cultivation practices.
