" Medium-large fruit, excellent flavor, resists scab, mid August, not a keeper. Hardy compact tree semi dwarf, flowers frost resistance."



2021 - #1 - moderate growth.

#2 - good, cleared around grafts, tied down more horizontal. Direct cut graft didn't take.


2020 - #1 - good, healthy, sturdy, ~3'^.     #2 - Original good. Grafted another, grew fine. Not large enough to cut scion to add another. Maybe next year.


2019 - Grafted end May onto small a15 seedling (inside orchard), se of Tater, @~12". (previously PommeGris grafted to this seedling but PG winterkilled '17-'18). Moderate growth 5" top, 4" side, 3 buds leafed.

#2 grafted onto nw branch of Lilli (in front of shop). Good 6" growth and 3 buds leafed. When larger, cut scions to graft nearby. 



Online Notes:  (ursula, north53) Recommends. ripe Sept 10. (derek) Great fresh flavor that stays crisp longer than most early apples. Very different sweet flavor, hard to describe. (ubro can z2) Ate my Discovery apple today and it was incredible. Crisp, very juicy, and with a nice balance of sweet and sour. The flavour was at first bite like a pear, but then the tuti fruity kicked in. To date, hands down, the best apple I have ever grown. (ARS-GRIN) med-lg, exc flavor, resist scab, mid Aug, not keeper. Hardy compact tree semi dwarf, flowers frost resistance. Susc FB.  (other) T2 vigor. Originally called Thurston August.
