Wild Apples in Georgia

botanicalboi(Zone 7 Georgia)July 12, 2012

I can not decide if this post belongs in Name That Plant or this section. I am curious about the common "wild apples" that are found so often here in Ga. My GGM used to call them "Alexander apples". Is this the correct name? These apples are medium in size, green with a red blush and SO yummy. I started some from seed many years ago from my GGM's tree. The trees seem to always come true to type. Any information would be greatly appreciated. Thanks! :-)

Alexander is a Russian Apple that fits your description; if its related to Antonovka then they do reproduce uncommonly true to seed.
