We have 3 very distinctive apple tree's I would like to identify. Can anyone help? They are old trees (40+ yrs). The apples on them are oblong in shape and have a very dark green (similar to the color avacado green from the 70's) as well as bright red although the are still not quite ripe. Any ideas?

Susie, before I take any wild guesses ... here's an opportunity to have them identified:

Arboretum: Apple ID Basics Class

Saturday, August 26, 1-5pm, at the HOS Arboretum
Back by popular demand after last year’s successful class! Join members of the HOS Apple ID team to learn the tricks behind identifying unknown apples. Come learn about the characteristics that help define the classic apple varieties we love – not just flavor and color, but shoulder, calyx, shape, and stem length. This is a skill that takes time to learn, but it doesn’t have to be limited to the experts.
-------------------------------------------------------

I realize you're a ways away in Coquille, but here's another opportunity at our big fall show:

All About Fruit Show

Saturday & Sunday, October 14-15
This is HOS's big annual event, and you don't want to miss it. Taste hundreds of varieties of apples, pears, and other fruit. Workshops, advice, order trees, and lots more. Watch for more details as the date approaches.
-----------------------------------------------------
When do your apples get ripe (seeds brown & begin to fall)? Is there a waxy 'finish' on them? Does the red develop where they're exposed to the sun? Are the colors blotchy, or striped? How long are their stems? I'm not one of the ID experts, maybe one of them will 'appear' to help.
