1. Ambrosia Apple
I had my first locally grown ambrosia apple tonight and loved it, immediately. I started searching online for a tree and they are either unavailable or sold out most places…except for Home Depot of all places. But it’s bare root and would arrive next week. My questions:
- How can they have a truly dormant, bare root tree at this time of year?
- Would you trust that these are THE ambrosia I just ate?
- If I got a couple, would I just pot them in loose potting soil in a protected place and cross my fingers? I could temporarily plant in my vegetable garden but I don’t have a good permanent spot.
2. Apple Recommendations
If I like Honeycrisp, Kindercrisp and Ambrosia apples, what else would you recommend?
I like the sweet and crunch of them as compared to the Empire, Fuji or Jonathon I tried tonight.
Or is there a website for something like this?
Thanks for any thoughts…
