​​​Another Miracle of Nature  

While they may not look like much to some, we are always thrilled when the top-grafts start to grow (photos as of 5/7/23).  As shown in the additional photos, two weeks ago we top-grafted 18 large Empire trees over to Pixie Crunch, an early season sweet variety that is naturally disease resistant.  Top-grafting requires us to cut in half our 15 year-old trees so it is truly wonderful to see the new variety starting to grow.  Hopefully, these will do as well as our earlier top-grafting over to EverCrisp, LudaCrisp, Honeycrisp, and Sweet Zinger.  Those varieties started to produce some tasty fruit in the second season after grafting!
