Dwarf Apple - Dorsett Golden (Grafted) 5/10

Apparro's Edible Fruits
Update: 1731 days 8hrs

Comments: -

Review for Sundowner Apple. Double grafted dwarf apple tree. That double graft is rather gnarly looking but it seems to be doing a good job restricting its growth. It has managed to flower and fruit with the aid of my granny smith tree. I picked off all fruit and flowers earlier today (late Nov). Still flowering now when Granny Smith has finished however there is sufficient overlap.

Problems I've had are upturned leaf curl and it slow growth. However that may be due to the potting mix I used which may not be free draining enough. Currently in 45cm pot and I plan to soon repot it into a half wine barrel. Sprayed with Burgandy mixture in late winter and it had reduced leafcurl somewhat.

Dwarf Apple - Granny Smith (Grafted) 5/10

Apparro's Edible Fruits
Update: 1731 days 8hrs

Comments: - Dwarf Granny Smith Apple. I want it for its cooking apples and as a pollinator. So far its growth has indeed been moderate however it is still in a small pot. One point of concern is upward curling leaves. hasn't affected the fruit set as I just today (end of Nov) cut off 15 little apples.

Dwarf Almond - Self Pollinating Papershell (Grafted) 7/10

Apparro's Edible Fruits
Update: 1731 days 8hrs

Comments: - I love fresh almonds but the ones you buy in the store are almost always stale. That's why I purchased this tree. So far  I've had it a year. Last summer I left it in the full sun and it got burned and dropped most of its leaves. Not an ideal start. This year it flowered and currently has a crop of one solitary almond. Seems to have put on around about 15cm of growth; seems a true dwarf.
