May be CAR immune

MichaelMay 3, 2012

Howdy folks: a few years ago I discovered a very large, old apple tree in town that seemed to shrug off CAR. Mind you, my dinky town is a hotbed for CAR galls and large sporulation events every Spring. So, I grafted some buds to 2 different rootstock and the trees are now in their 3 rd leaf and doing well. This Spring was typical for galls and I decided not to spray finally, the result, every leaf is clean as a whistle, I'm amazed. BTW, I call the variety, "Judy's Favorite" because nobody has a clue what it is. If you want a picture of the fruit from the old tee, I think I have one somewhere. The one on G11 is flowering for the first time this Spring, the one on M111 did not.

There are heritage apple people that search for old trees. You might have one they want.
