Homeowner Growing and Maintenance Tips

Many heirloom varieties have some natural resistance to apple scab and other diseases, since they were often discovered and grown well before fruit growers started to use chemicals for disease control.  However, you may still want to be vigilant about fire blight, apple scab, and other fungal diseases and spray when the need arises.  Protect from insect damage like normal.


A Little History about Tolman Sweet Apple

Tolman Sweet has a clouded parentage.  Some think it was a cross of Sweet Greening X Old Russet, while others doubt this cross.  In any case it developed a great following all over and is still in demand at heirloom orchards.
