Check out the red delicious compared to the Akane. These both grew on the same tree!
The Akane pictured here was grafted onto the scabby red delicious... but these are just as perfect as the ones on my other tree. So if you have horrible scabby apples, all you have to do is graft on a better variety... and voila you will have good apples. The grafting experiment worked so now I know I can regraft & get rid of all the red delicious, which are consistently scabby. A remarkable difference in these apples that grew on the same tree!!! Every Akane apple is perfect and every red delicious apple is that bad.
