Large Apples!

I am thrilled that my one 3-in-1 apple tree is producing very large apples this season! My tree is very young, with few branches, but has fruits dotted all over them, in various stages of development.

I just finished eating one of them, a wonderful balance of sweet and tart. Check out one of these glorious apples, just picked! It is substantial and a size that rivals apples found in supermarkets.

When I first started growing my fruit and vegetable garden, I wondered if the fruits and vegetables would be a normal size, or if they would be smaller. Doubts begone! I only add water, no fertilizers, plus a lot of tender loving care.

The difference, really, is the wonderful taste. I’ve posted before about some of the tasteless fruits I’ve experienced for over a year now.  They are fruits in name only – FINOs! What a wonderful blessing to have home-grown fruit. There is no need to grow a whole orchard – just one tree can produce amazing results!

CONSUMER ALERT UPDATE:  Apple seeds are highly toxic if ingested. More information on toxic plants can be found here:
