Thought I’d post some pics of our fruit trees after I weeded and re-mulched them. Any comments/suggestions are appreciated. All the trees were planted in April 2016, unless otherwise noted. I apologize for some of the trees being hard to see, it’s difficult to get a clean shot of some of them.
Roxbury Russet, prob our best grower in this grove, on G30
King David, has put out lots of scaffolds, but still kinda skinny, on M7
Liberty, did fair, lost a few leaves. On G202
Grimes Golden, two trees, both have very nice scaffolds, on G16
Pristine, kinda top heavy, but did much better this year. On M7
Honeycrisp, not very much growth or scaffolds, leaves decimated by J beetles, on G210
Golden Russet, hardly any growth in two years, and dropped most its leaves. A real dog for me, on G222. Might move this tree next spring.
Winecrisp, has a few small scaffolds, also lost all its leaves. A G202, it may have to be moved also.
Goldrush, did OK, but would have liked to see more out of it this year. On G890
