Netting the tree is well worthwhile the effort if you want some of the fruit for delicious jelly or preserves. On my allotment, I'm resigned to the fact of netting absolutely everything against the foraging wildlife if I wish to have a share of the bounty! I remove the net after selective picking and leave the remainder for the animals/birds.

We have some low, cordoned apple trees and the fruit is snaffled by badgers before we get to sample them. I've no idea what they taste like!

I am not absolutely sure, but the picture looks like a couple of the trees in the park next to my house. These apples are much smaller than a normal apple fruit and we call it "paradise apples". Actually it`s fading, but a few days ago I saw these trees blossoming - the view is breathtaking, beautiful indeed!
Early in the morning is possible to see two elks, who craves it.( And some wild ducks all day long) My grandmother had been harvesting these apples in November, while they had lived in Gdańsk, near The Baltic Sea, and afterwards the fruits were on the top of her Christmas cake.

Beautiful blossom, fingers crossed for you being able to sample the fruit.

Although wild cherry looks stunning when in blossom there is something so special about apple blossom. Certainly worth netting if the local squirrels are going to repeat last years practices.

Bunyard - what a genius food and wine writer! Shoot the blighters (unless red of course) :-)
