Opinions on Harry Master's Jersey?
I asked Cummins to recommend an apple I could plant in my front yard without any fear that the harvest would be stolen by kids walking home from school. Their recommendation was HMJ. I ended up planting it in the back yard, but I am finding that it is susceptible to fire blight, which hasn't shown up on any other trees I have.
I admit to not spaying any of my trees because, so far I've had no need. (I will for certain next year).
So, I am wondering if this apple will be worth the bother come cider-making time. I have cut all the tips off with baby apples except one, and this is the first year it bloomed.
Oh, and this is another observation I made: It blooms so late that I am not sure if it will be well pollinated by my other apples.
