Re: [nafex] liberty apple



It sure helps if you let us know where you're gardening. Please add your state or
zone to your signature.

In south coastal BC, the Liberties are ready for picking.  They are sweet and
crisp.  If you have had a few days with temps greater than 28C, the spots might
be sunscald.  Usually the spots occur on the south west side of the tree.
Sprinkling with water for 15 mins in every hour while temp is above 28C will
reduce sunburn.   If you are low in calcium, these might be symptoms of a
calcium-deficiency disease such as bitter pit.

I think it's one of the varieties that can be eaten straight off the tree.  I
store mine in a cooler (1-2C) until they are sold.

:        I' ve waited 5 yrs. for this liberty and find I can't take the
