Apple Trees!

I've been growing some apple trees from seed.

It takes an incredibly long time to grow apple trees from seed.

So we bought a couple of trees. The eastern tree is 5 varieties. The western tree is yellow transparent.
Here are the five varieties of the first tree:
  • Akane
  • Chehalis
  • Honeycrisp
  • Gravenstine
  • Liberty
We did it this way so that we could accomplish two goals:

  1. Get apples that can pollinate each other.  This is trickier than you'd think.
  2. Get Gravenstine apples.
We'll see how this turns out.
