What type of apple tree?

katisu(5 Indy)July 27, 2014

What type of apple tree is this? The apples are so tiny. Not like, cherry-sized, but very small. They are green. Could the fact that we only have one apple tree be the reason they're so small?

I'm going to post a few more pics in this thread in a couple of mins, so bear with me.

Thanks in advance!

to ID an apple ... you need to show pix of the mature apples... and MAYBE.. someone in the fruit forum can give you a fruit name ...

and since crabs are in the apple family ... we cant even rule that out on these pix ...

This is the best I can do as far as the fruit. I know it isn't really apple season quite yet, but they all seem to fall before they get any larger than this. And this one has been on the ground for a bit. Of course, the squirrels could be to blame for that.

Hopefully we can get a few good ones in a few months, and then I can provide a better picture!

Are all the apples falling? Most apple trees undergo the 'June drop' where they shed a lot of small fruit. But the remainder go on to maturity. Identifying apples is very difficult even if one has a ripe fruit and well nigh impossible with an immature one.

I only see maybe two apples left. And they're about this size. The tree is taller than my 2-story house, so I can't see all the way up.

I guess I can wait a few months and see what happens.
