Anyone growing a Hollow Log apple? I have a 3 year old m7 tree and am looking for first hand experiences with this variety…
That’s a really rare one. Following.
I have a Hollow Log apple tree as well. I had only one apple off of it last year. it was really small so I could not really get a good taste per say. It is only in the second leafing so hopefully I will get a few more next year. It is still pretty small on a M111 rootstock.
Rick did this tree ever fruit for you? Interested in this variety.
No not yet. Really hoping to taste some, maybe next year.
Anyone Fruit the hollow log apple yet?
I had 4 or 5 apples two years ago. Last year was a horrible year for apples here. Late frost/freeze exactly as all the trees were blooming.
The ones I got were really good. Smaller than I thought they would be. They were very good. I think they will be better in the next few years. That was the first time I got any apples from it. Hopefully I will get more or these apples next year.
Here’s a couple pictures David (Century Farm) sent me. He says it’s a very good variety, acidic sweet. I originally reached out to order rootstock, ended up with one of these, 2 rexrode beauty, ruby limbertwig, rawley, Virginia sweet, and a Jonalicious. Yup I have a serious problem. This site may need to offer free addiction counseling soon.
Rick any fruitlets this year?
I did find one small bug bitten apple that had changed colors and took a bit out of the good side. It had a surprising good sweet/tart flavor.
Wow look at that white flesh. Looks like a good variety. Has a good crunch to it?
I also have Hollow Log on MM111. Glad to hear you liked the taste.
Yes, a nice crisp apple. It was just a tiny sample but I’m excited.
@Rosdonald How is the hollow log tree doing for you in VA? Any disease issues?
Too young to bear fruit, but no issues. The tree is quite healthy with five nice scaffolds.
thanks, i forgot i already asked you about this! haha
