Does a Mutsu apple tree have a chance of ripening in WI?
I've heard lots of good things about the Mutsu apple. There is one at Menards on clearance now, so I'm tempted to squeeze it in to my yard. However, I really don't want to take care of it only to find I never get a harvest. It's supposed to ripen in mid-October. In zone 5, near Madison WI we have a 90% chance to get a frost by mid-October.
Does anyone in a similar climate have a Mutsu tree? Will it ripen, and is it worth it? Thanks for your input!
