Recently I decided to plant a new section of Orchard with the standard Antanovka Apple. I'm not planning to eat them though I know people do but rather graft them over to a fast bearing apple. What are your suggestions on good varieties of apples that bear fast? Any favorites of yours and what are there advantages / disadvantages? The soil is heavy clay gumbo and PH is 8+. We get late frosts so bloom time can be critical. It can be a challenging place to grow fruit though can be done.
