Re: ARCHIVES

I can not access archives, either :( It appears that we need a special password. Perhaps one of the owners could explain why that is so. Yrs Trly has also a request.

Re: "pound apple" tree? Correct name

A photo might help us identify your cultivar.

Perhaps the information on this page will answer the other questions in your post - in particular, how to grow your own :)

Re: Apple Crops In Other Places

Having difficulty digesting the potentially devastating news from both Michigan and New York . The economic implications - not only for growers, but for all those in attendant industries, such as storage, packing, transport, etc - will surely be felt all across the 'mitten state,' which continues to...

Re: Can you ID this apple?

Beautiful photos, burningdust. The apple could be one of a few different varieties, howsoever. Have you asked any of the local growers in your area?
