While I'm not sure exactly what kind, apparently we have an apple tree out back. Yummm! I see apple pie in the future.
Hi Deanna, good picture of the apple tree. We have two apple tree's much smaller planted last year no apples this year. The fig tree will give us plenty of figs this year so many flowers on it already, last year no figs at all and no flowers. Ellen from Georgia
Oooh. Pretty blooms! I had thought of getting a fig tree. My mother in law has a huge fig out back. It produces more than she can keep up with every year, so there may be no need. But I still wouldn't mind having one in the yard. And I know the kids wouldn't mind. Our apple tree was loaded with tiny apples when we moved in, so we haven't seen it in bloom yet. But, that's one of the things I love about fruit trees. You get gorgeous blooming trees, followed by lots of yummy fruits.
Hi Deanna, our fig tree is small and there are two other tree's planted very close to it. Last year we didn't have a figs or flowers so hopefully this year will be the year of the fig. Maybe next year we will have apples, maybe you can see the two small apple tree's
As the fruit gets bigger, I'm starting to think I might have been off the mark. I'm thinking this looks more like a pear tree. Until we know for sure, I guess I'll call it mystery fruit ;)
Hi Deanna it looks like a apple tree to me, as you can see my apple tree's are still small and they are two years old. My mystery plant turned out to be a Orange Turkish Egg plant, have already picked 8 and fried them up really good. I soaked the slices in salt for one hour to make sure they didn't taste bitter it worked Ellen
Whatever our mystery fruit is, I'm pretty sure it came from a grafted plant. There are a bunch of little fruits on it too, that haven't gotten any larger. I'll try to put some pictures of them up later. It's storming here.
There's no telling what we have out here from the last owners. We've been discovering all sorts of plants. The blackberries finally stopped producing (I've got a ton of them in the freezer). And the wild blueberries are starting to ripen now. We've got all kinds of lantana and roses coming in. I even found some white lantana buried under one of the hedges that we took out. Everything was so overgrown when we moved in that I hate to take anything out until we know what it is. Oh, and we've found a few wild grapevines growing in the yard.
I need to start carrying my camera around with me again so I can post more pictures as I make discoveries.
Hi Deanna see that you live in Georgia also, I live in north east Georgia outside of a small town about seven miles south of Danielsville. We have a small place about four acres and a big garden this year, still waiting for the apples tree's to produce. Would like to see some pictures, here are a couple of pictures of our place Ellen
