An 'orchard grade' is a tree that may be on the shorter side, may be crooked or with slight damage. These trees will still produce the very same fruit as a first or number 1 will. They may need to be staked and they do need regular watering, fertilizer and protection from weeds and hungry animals. All trees will benefit from pruning.
Beautiful, high quality, very early red apple ranks high for scab resistance. Large, firm and juicy with great full-bodied flavour and crisp texture. Delightful fresh eating but also ideal for culinary usage – thin skin practically disappears when cooked. Wynoochee Early ripens over a 3 week period in August and will actually keep until Christmas in cold storage.
