Glen Seedling

Glen Seedling

Today’s apple trial is Glen Seedling, developed in Oak Glen at the Wilshire Ranch.  The trees appear to be planted in the 1950’s, and so it was some time before then.  Grown in the mountains is is sweet/tart and crispy, proportedly making way better pies than Granny Smith.  Grown down here in the heat it was still crisp and juicy, but a bit on the chewy side and not very tart, kind of boring.  It was very productive and bore the second year on M111 rootstock, an accomplishment for any apple.  But I would stick with going up to Oak Glen for these as we can grow much better pie apples with other varieties.
