There's a lovely little apple tree in my backyard. It was rather overgrown and wild, then the gardeners cut it back a few years ago. The following year it bloomed lovely apple blossoms, but no fruit. Last year it did bear some fruit, but the apples were small and sour. This year, they are perfect. I don't know what variety they are, but they are delicious. My mom was in our backyard picking apples - she came straight from church, that's why she looks so fancy.
