This is a wonderful apple tree called 'Discovery'. It is an old variety from the United Kingdom dating back to the early 1900's.
These photos were taken a couple of weeks ago when it was in full bloom. The whole tree was humming with thousands of bees enjoying the blossoms. Unfortunately they all managed to avoid being photographed.
This is one of the last apples to flower in my orchard and already I can see the fruit forming. They are ready to eat in February and we always get a good crop. If you are looking for an easy care apple, this one is it. She looks after herself, never gets sprayed, doesn't have any health problems at all, and we get plenty of fruit to stew, freeze and eat fresh.
