Liberty apples holding up pretty well-


#1

Six months, more or less, since harvest. Not so crisp nor as sharp, but still great flavor, especially on those that were picked a little early.


#2

Those look great!


#3

They look great. I should get a little better idea how they work in my location this season. My one apple from it last year was very good.


#4

We finished the last of these the first week of April, and they were still pretty fair. That’s over 7 months- so I’m not complaining. They were definitely declining, and in another week or so would probably be past it, although maybe still good for applesauce? I have to say, Libs make an excellent unsweetened applesauce. Just cut, add cinnamon, and cook. In any event, I was pretty pleased to get 'em to hold that well.


#5

I just grafted on some Liberty, good to hear you like them.


#6

Jim, they have good years and bad year. Bit of a learning curve with this apple, and I’m not sure where I am on the curve yet!

Got a deal at Lowe’s, Liberty apple tree in 3 gallon pot for $24.95. It was root bound, but with over 1" caliper and almost 10’ it was calling my name.
