Dwarf Apple - Dorsett Golden

Has done really well in Sydney. I cut the flowers off the first year but let it go the second and got quite a bit of fruit. Unfortunately they did get his by fruit fly so I ate them a bit earlier but they still tasted good.

Mooloolaba, QLD, Australia

Planted back in 2008 with an 'Anna'.  Anna did not survive the winter but Dorsett continued on and produced 16 apples dispite not having an official pollinator.  May have been another apple in the area though I do doubt it.  Anyway, nice dense, cris...
