although it appears that my peaches and plums may take a bit of work to produce well, at least one of my apple trees appears to be care free! gobs and gobs of apples and we didn't do a thing other then watch them grow! and they are wonderful eating apples too. crisp and sweet. I wish I knew what variety they were. I guess if I want more I will have to graft some branches. Iwould like another tree just like it as a back up but in reality I can't imagine anyone needing more apples than this tree is producing! my extra frig is full and the tree is still loaded!

Wow!

When I get ready to plant my little "orchard," I would love to know what type that tree is.

I'm planning on at least two apple trees, with the focus being mostly on good, crisp cooking apples and ones that store well.

Do you know how old that tree is?

I don't have any idea on the age of the tree really. the previous owners planted it sometime within the past 10 years. I am sure they just bought it locally. at least I doubt they went to the effort to order a special variety, so I am going to pay a bit more attention to what is offered locally next year and see if I can come up with a good guess as to what variety it is.

paradigm- that is a cool idea! I have heard of using a new garbage disposal placed in a  frame over a bucket to make applesauce and I had been contemplating coming up with something along the lines of that!
