My old eating apple tree
We have lived here for 27 years and have a lovely old apple tree which was here long before we were. Until now it has been fine, even though we do not give it much tlc. At the moment though it is looking awful, hardly any leaves, bare branches (it has had lichen on the branches for a few years now) also it has blossom on it - mid July. I do not know what variety it is, other than years ago I was told it was a very unusual old English variety, it has a thick, very deep red skin but the inside of the apple is white with pink veins running though, when stewed the apple pulp is pink. I would be most grateful for any advice on how to help this tree.
