Fall colours seem obligatory in the blogosphere, and our King apple tree has been very obliging this year with apples redder than usual.
They are big too – up to 12″ (30 cm) diameter. The King is a versatile apple, they have a heavy wax coating naturally, keep well into January in a cold room (the small ones keep longer than the big ones), they are good for eating fresh, but we mostly make apple sauce, apple juice and dried apple and put aside a couple of boxes to use during the fall and early winter. If you want to see views of these apples on the tree and being processed and to scale then click here.
