These keep hanging on my truck mirror. Guess I need to eat some of them.....
That thing is loaded! There seems to be plenty for the deer and pie.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 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.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.

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.
