I have a wild ....
« on: May 16, 2013, 06:10:41 AM »
Apple tree that produces every year...that is so unusual around here...and It has some buddies coming along as well....When we first bought this place I found wild apples scattered all over....so I started cutting the maples away from them...to give them more light...and there were several mature trees in the hedge rows....they all dropped early and had good little red apples on them...and one day I noticed a whip coming along and the following year Flowers!...one apple, then a year later it just grew crazy fast and had more apples...... yellow medium sized ones...that held on through Oct... @--0--0118....Last year the tree was loaded and this year it is just filled with blossoms....Thirty feet away there is a 3yr old tree.....5ft tall and it is loaded with blossoms.
I found some whips near it that I will dig and trans plant....I have fun finding new trees on the place....I found some red current whips that were whips for years...then I trans planted them....I now have 4 1/2 ft x 4ft current bushes
Do any of you do this and what neat things have you discovered?

we have a couple of wild apples that produce nice red apples most years, they are in blossom now.  we got lots of thorn apples that produce hard little red apples every year, the grouse seem to like them, but I could do without the thorn apples

Our land was an old homestead.  Covered with crabapple trees, they look like small green apples.  Wild blackberries, dewberries and muscadine grape vines.  Alone with just about every kind of oak tree native to our area, different holly trees/bushes.  I cleared the undergrowth, started food plots and have planted fig, chestnut, hazelnut, plum, along with a Jujube tree (also known as the Chinese date).  Wish I did not have so many gum ball trees also!!!

That is the one thing I wish I had PJ....different oaks...I can't get a wht oak to grow on our place...this entire side of the valley has lots of reds...we have over 200 on our place...and the other side of the valley has both reds and whts......Funny how a few miles can change a land scape...we also have nearly every kind of native berry you can think of growing here and the goose berries have taken off like wild fire in the last few years....

I have all kind of oaks, wild plum, blackberry, locust and wild cherry. lots of mucadines and persimmon.  I usually buy all of the fruit trees from walmart at the end of the season when they are marked down on clearance.  I have gotten them as cheap as $1.50 but usually its around $6.00 per tree for 6-7 foot trees.
