First Anna

My wife came in with this apple that had fallen off the tree yesterday.  Juicy, sweet, maybe a little on the mushy side as I don’t know how long it was on the ground, but definately the first ripe apple of our season. 

We’ve had a long cool spring, very unusual for our location as it often hits over 100F by April.  Here it is the middle of June and we still haven’t broke 100, as evidenced by the fireblight strikes I’m still pruning out.  I’ve also noticed that if Anna doesn’t get this heat, it tends to have a bit of an astringent finish which turned me off to it the first year we had it (also an unusually cool year).  But not to worry, I’m sure by next year we’ll be back to our usually stinking hot springs and smooth finishing Annas.
