When are apples ripe?
I have some 3 in 1 apple trees, and this is their first year with a couple of apples. One branch they are getting REALLY big (I've propped them up with a tomato cage) and I am at a loss to know when to pick them. I have Mutsu, Queen Cox and Granny Smith and one other I can't think of right now. I know if they are over-ripe, they get mealy.
Any advice about picking?
Oh, and I have the same question about my 3 in 1 pears too.
