Edible little apples....

Postby melbrackstone » September 14th, 2018, 8:21 pm

This farmer from Victoria has developed an apple tree that grows little apples....and they're edible... and he's going to bulldoze the lot. :(

Hi

Thanks for the heads up a great read and I'm still coming to terms that he covered them with nets at his age and smokes as well :lost: :lost: :lost:

Hi Melbrackstone,

Thanks for this link. What an excellent article.

I am not sure why but I was/am quite emotional reading the article.

Well written and beautifully captured through wonderful photography.

I am left with admiration for the farmer's work but some melancholy as well.

Time passes.

tic. tic.

Cheers.

Tending bonsai teaches me patience.

Agree guys, it was a really interesting story. What I was thinking though....wouldn't it make a great little bonsai with small apples. :)

Oh well, it seems he's bulldozed his trees, but sold some scions to someone who will continue the strain...
