About Johnny Come Lately:
This Crab Apple was selected for it’s very late ripening and very firm qualities.
Apples that don’t get mushy right away after falling to the ground are a great asset, especially late in the year. Whitetails will dig through the snow to eat apples if they are still apples and not applesauce. I noticed that some of the apples had been run over by lawn mowers without much damage, proof enough for me that these are without question great (If not the best) keepers I’ve ever found. You will be rewarded, by placing them near your late season deer stand.
