Apple Grafting Update. 6.17.17
Jonathan on Jonared. 6.17.17
Here is a grafting update. Most of the grafts are doing well. I accidentally broke off the Honeycrisp graft that I added to Winecrisp. Firecracker red flesh crab did not take, but Grenadine red flesh apple did. Apple grafts doing well: Opalescent, Jonathan, Airlie Red Flesh, Fameuse, Dolgo Crab, King David, Sweet 16, Grenadine. Last year's Airlie Red Flesh has 5 apples, Newtown Pippin has one, and Baldwin about 6. Milo Gibson and Sweet 16 that were very slow, have taken off and growing like gangbusters.
