Montana Wild Apple

1 Review | Write a Review
In the Mission Valley of Montana, there is an incredible diversity of naturalized apples. Jere Gettle, whose boyhood home was Montana, fondly remembers the rugged valley landscape covered in a sensational mix of colors and flavors. Apples in this area range from bright orange to subtle pinks in riotous stripes of colors, and the flavor is outstanding. The apples here surreptitiously sprouted from seeds deposited by pioneers of the 1800s, which explains the diversity of the fruit, as apples started from seed are genetically random. Mountain men, trappers, and loggers who packed apples along for their journey tossed cores as they traversed the virgin landscape; randomized crossbred apples sprouted in their place. Black bears can be seen climbing the apple trees in this area, and indeed the bears played a role in spreading the apples across the landscape.

What are the pros? No stratification needed.

What are the cons? None.


I can't say how these taste, but they germinated well, and do not require stratification for anyone wondering. These most likely won't survive in my area, but they're fun to experiment with.
