Gala apples picked early
To save some young branches that were half broken I just had to clip off 7-8 apples from a containerized Gala apple tree. I read that they are supposed to be ripe in mid Aug, about two weeks from now. These apples are green, a few with a little blush of color.
I wonder if these apples are or will be edible and if there's anything I can do to make them more so. Or can they be cooked/baked to get some use out of them. Any ideas?
