Posted on 2022-07-222022-07-22 by the_dr_blue07/22/2022 our first and only apple We looked at the William’s pride apple tree today and the apple was missing!! Concern. We found it on the ground. Sadly, the bottom half was rotted. I forgot that William’s pride is an early variety, so we should have picked sooner before it fell. However, we cut off the bad part and the rest was quite delicious! A nice texture and magnificent smell!! Gram was less impressed than we were.
