Ryan found this tree at the edge of our forest. It's a sweet crab apple!
The fruit is about 1.5" diameter. They are a lot bigger than regular crab apples, as you can see from this one on my back terrace (the same tree whose flowers I showed you in April).
Do you think they're called crab apples because you're crabby if that's all you can find to eat?
We've had a lot of rain here in the past 3 days - about 4". The rain took a lot of apples off the apple tree in my courtyard.
Of course, plenty remain. However, don't let this picture fool you. I used a huge amount of zoom to take this picture, because these apples are a good 20 feet off the ground. I think even Jeff will have trouble reaching them!
