Early apple trees (White pouring, Papirovka) give fruits that reach ripeness in mid-August. They are usually stored for a very short time. Autumn varieties (Melba, Cinnamon striped, Korean) mature in September, the fruit storage period for them reaches three weeks. Winter apples (Antonovka, Moscow winter, Welsey, Aport and others) can be stored in some cases until the spring of next year. It is not possible to list all varieties of apple trees. However, you need to study the features of a few that are particularly attractive to you and remember them well.

It may turn out that this is wild, and not an apple-tree antonovka. Planting and caring for several trees is quite possible for an average summer resident.

If the bark is dry, then the seedling is likely to be unfit.
