Picked a dozen Methleys today. The first year ive harvested from that tree. Some fruits were over ripe and some were a tad under ripe. Many were very good. All of mine were very small though. Maybe golf ball size. Kids liked them and so did I. The downside is that more and more black knot is developing on the tree. Ive cut a lot out but it just keeps getting worse.
Also still losing my battle with deer. They keep getting through my fence and this time stole all but the single highest Zestar apple. That was my best apple crop since planting my orchard.
