Unknown Apple Tree


By Freddie

Unknown Apple Tree

its of a very small apple tree, about 12 inches tall, but the size of the
two apples are enormous compared to the size of the tree, I would
please like to know the name of this tree, do you think it would go
into the Guiness book of records, because of the size of it.
Thank you for reading my story, Yours sincerely Freddie.

Looks like golden delicious, the small round shape and color suggests to me. Grew them in the orchard growing up. They stay rather small though most apples start producing once they're ten years old. Perhaps a cutting from an adult parent tree doesn't take as long. Some dwarfs are only five or six feet tall in old age. Any help?

Could it be Quince ?

Hello Xela,
I'm sorry that I have not been in touch before, but have had trouble
with my computer.
You are quite right my so called apple is a Quince, I saw a picture of it
in a Sunday magazine, and I was really amazed when I read about it,
and it said that it was self - fertilie, I bought as a shrub about 3 years ago,
and had been wondering why it was'nt growing very tall, as you can see from my pictures it is a right little mini, I did pick the two fruits and cut
them open had a little taste but they were very bitter, out of the Quinces
I had 70 seeds from them, which was very suprising considering they
were such small fruits.
Thank you for your interest, All the best for now Freddie.
