Well, those nice crispy apples turned out to be eaters and not keepers. After just a couple of weeks they turned very floury and started to rot. The blackbirds had some of them and I stewed up the rest.
At least this might help us with the identificaiton process!
This is one of the first apple trees we planted at Pojo and we have forgotten which variety it is. We spent hours trying to identify the apples with the help of the Nordic apple book but gave up. It might be Lobo.
Anyway, they are ready to eat and delicious.
We are still having problems keeping the deer off the fruit trees. The sheep only eat the windfalls which is OK, but the deer eat the fruit, leaves, branches... everything. If we completely surround the trees with wire then we can't get in to do the weeding and even picking the apples gets complicated.
