Heirloom Apple Taste

Finally got to taste a Black Limbertwig and King David apples! I have grafted them on friends’ trees (and mine) all over the county but was flying blind, relying on catalog descriptions, which in this case were pretty accurate.

BLT- Crunchy, juicy, kind of sweet, kind of tart, really good blend. Did not detect any taste unique to limbertwigs that catalogs mention.

KD- Assertive tart up front with sweet in the background, crisp, you want to eat a bunch. A VERY good apple.

Both winners, keepers, disease resistant and KD is said to be precocious.
