In 2011, I purchased an “Imperial Gala” apple tree and planted it in the backyard, replacing a tree that the rabbits had killed.
This year, we had an apple on the tree. Now, I know that you are supposed to remove those first apples for the health of the tree but I, like many, just can’t resist letting it grow to get that first taste of yummy.
Yesterday we had the big bite. Oh my, oh my … DELICIOUS. Crunchy, sweet but with a a bit of a punch in flavour. I can’t wait for next year.
