There are lots of seedlings this year; some of them had mildew this summer, but others are looking exciting. Breeding goes on.

Here are a few photos of my apples from which I have collected seed:

A redfleshed seedling I found this summer near an agricultural institute at the northern university area in Göttingen. Fruit is as big as `Golden Delicious´, very juicy.

Malus niedzwetzkyana; probably the `mother´of most redfleshed varieties.

The same, magnified to (approxiimate) actual size:


Malus `Rubens´, a redfleshed variety from a German nursery; graftsticks were taken from a hundred year old tree found in the Bavarian Forest (south-east Germany). Compared to others, fruit is small, tart but juicy. I laid a potato knife at the bottom for scale.

Another chance seedling, about 20 years old, found in a hedge:
