Our Favorite Apple tree!
We rescued this tree from land where an old shack was being razed to make room for a new house. My parents knew the previous owner well, and he experimented with fruit trees. We think this is an Antonvka Apple tree. An old Russian variety which is unusual because it does not require being grafted onto a different root stock to thrive, and tolerates extreme cold and droughts unusually well.
