Re: own rooted apple trees

You might do better to take cuttings. That will give you a full sized tree of your desired variety, and less work.

Re: Growing a tree from seed/grafting

You can graft a Pink Lady scion onto what you have. That will produce Pink Lady apples. Of course you will have a full sized tree, because it's a seedling rootstock.

Re: Fire blight?

Could be fire blight, but the only time I saw fire blight was on my pear trees, and they were covered with it. The affected parts were totally destroyed. Yours doesn't seem to be covered too badly, so possibly it's something besides fire blight. Maybe an expert will chime in.
