Partnered with the Dorsett, Not as good cropping but I think thats because of the shape. Trying to get more laterals.
Brad1 says... [3228 days 5hrs ago]
pretty sure the kuffel creek book said anna took a little while then went nuts. Needed lots of thinning. Dorsett is an animal - no apple will keep up with it in early years

Picked up some disease over winter, maybe same as the nectazee. Got it in time with some copper spray but had to cut back heavily. Coming back now with large lush green leaves.

How long have you had the nectazee before it died ?
Jason1 says... [3520 days 19hrs ago]
Was in its second year, I planted it in the ground and I think it got some sort of disease. All the branches became dry and brittle.
