    Hi April.. This is defiantly true. I normally wait until the first frost before I pick the red delicious apples. I can tell you the flavor is second to none. This stands true with most apples being picked after the first frost.

    When I told her I don't like red delicious apples a local red delicious grower told me that if you harvest after a hard freeze, they will be the most delicious apple you have ever had.

    Hi There.. I give most of the harvest away to friends and family and sometime donate some to a local church. I do this just for fun to get my head away from the rat race that we all go through to earn a buck. Thanks for the support..;)

    It's pruned that way so that the centre can remain clear. I find that when I prune this way, the fruits are on the outer branches, easier to reach and I get a better yield. The fruits seem to be sweeter, maybe because they get better light. I don't have any problems with branches breaking at all. Thanks for the comment, good luck and happy planting!!

    The red delicious looks great. Good job pruning that with the open center for light and air flow. Do you have to spray that tree at all. I don't see any blemishes on those apples at all. Very Nice garden tour. Thanks
