Update: Transplanted Old, Minidwarf Apple Trees, 2 seasons later. 10.8.17
Jonagold on M27. 10.8.17
These are dwarfs, on M27 rootstock. I transplanted them last winter. I think they are around 16 years old. They did fine. The Liberty had about 20 apples, maybe as much as it can handle anyway. Then Jonagold only had 3, and of those only one looks edible. That one is alternate year bearing anyway, and this was to be the off year.
I'm happy with how they responded to transplanting and care.
