Post Re: Tree from seed
Looking at photos from the past shows, each plate has a card with info something like this:

Quote:
<apple name>

Use:
Flesh/flavor:
Origin:
Parentage:
Disease resistance:
Bloom period:
Growth habit:
Harvest:
Storage:


I would be happy to take a stab at each of these but I'm not sure what vocabulary & criteria to use. e.g. the tree is really healthy with no spraying so I am inclined to say "Good" for disease resistance, but I suspect that is not an appropriate answer for that field. Is there a standard/criteria for these descriptors online somewhere?

Usually, one would say "resistant to apple scab",
susceptible to cedar apple rust,
etc. If you don't know details, you can just say,
"seems resistant to most diseases".

Storage is if it stores for some time after picking. "til March"

Something that grows well in your area. Pomegranates? Jujube? Lemons?
