First Fruit

Today, I ate an apple off our little baby apple tree which we planted a couple(?) of years ago.  A Golden Delicious.  The tree is a multi - I think it will have Grannies and Fujis (if we don't kill it with our ignorance and neglect.)  I wondered how good the apple would be as it has languished in the fridge for a week or two (the primary apple eater(s) holding out for a Granny or a Fuji), but it was very good indeed.  When I was a kid, Golden Delicious was my favorite.  But they must be crisp.  I think I started preferring Grannies and Fujis when I started eating them with sharp cheese.  It seems I prefer not to eat a tart apple by itself.  A good Golden is delicious by itself, as this one reminded me.  hmmmmm.  I think there is another one in the fridge.  Tomorrow!


  1. Yay! Is it a mini fruit tree or full size? I'm thinking about planting a mini fruit tree or two along my back fence. Possibly cherry and apple.

    Congratulations on the fruits of your labor! :)

  2. It's a dwarf tree. Have you read about espanlier? That's training trees to grow basically flat against a wall or fence. I think it would take some dedication, but what a space saver!

  3. I've not heard of that before, I'll have to look into it. Thanks! :)
