We have several very old apple trees in our orchard that are at least 50 years old, no one knows what variety they are. They are the remainders of the original orchard here in Alsea. The orchard was planted to have apples ripening for as long as possible, first one being a Yellow Transparent and ending with the three in question. Several later trees have had to be removed and we had no idea of their varieties either. But the tree in this submission is just now starting to ripen, the end of September. Crisp and 'semi-sweet' , great applesauce.
