    Mom turned post #17 into another Mennonite Dutch Apple pie for me. Sorry to hijack your thread NH but this seems like the PERFECT place.

    It seems a little early, but my Myers Royal Limbertwigs have started slowly falling from the tree. The taste is a little tart right now, but let them set for a few weeks and you will have a TASTE of HEAVEN...………. I picked these up off the ground.

    These Yates won't be ripe until October, but just thought I would share a picture since they were looking so good. There might not be a better deer apple for my area. Mine drop well into November and are highly DR.

    I swung by the farm today to pick up a few chestnuts for my personal use. The ground is covered with them, but many trees not dropping yet.

    I took note of my Dolgo Crabs. They sure do look good right now considering our drought.

    I think I'm gonna sit on my hands for a few years and let my apples mature. If I get too carried away I'll end up with 172 acres of apples and never have any idea where my deer might be at any given time. But....definitely taking notes from threads like this for future plantings!

    I asked my cousin to shoot a few does off our place this year. He arrowed two does opening day under one of the apples that was there when we bought the place. Deer definitely love apples, I'd assume they have more moisture than most of the native plants right now. We haven't had a good rain in about a month.

    I believe these are the ones that grew on my Grandma's Farm that we called the Strawberry Apple due to it looking like a Strawberry with the seeds. Never knew it's real name.


    We also had both there and in an old Orchard in the woods that had apples we called Rusty Coat apples. My daughter did a search for them and found a place in Ga I do believe that had them as plants for sale.She bought one and we are trying to see if it will survive in Florida. They were a Yellow Base, with a Rust Colored overcoat with Wart-Like Bumps on it. The were simply the BEST apple I ever ate. Super Tart while still green, but oh so sweet once the turned ripe.

    Unfortunately no one thought to save them and as the trees grew old and died so did the Apple Line.

    I just noticed this post and that's why I'm so late replying.

    Rusty Coat is a name that has been used generically for a few different russet type apples; however, more than likely what you had was Kenner Seedling apples. There are a few other varieties as well that people call Rusty Coat, but Kenner is the most well known.

    Look at the link below, and you will see that Big Horse Creek Farm sells what they call Rusty Coat, but they say in the description that it is probably identical to Kenner Seedling.

    I just read this; There are so many kinds of apples, that if you ate a new one every day, it would take over 20 years to try them all.

    I'm willing to try and double the production (to two a day) if necessary.....;)
