Blooming Apple Trees

Hello, everyone! 📷😎

Here, the typical April weather is erratic and rainy. Well, three weeks ago, it wasn't. It was very sunny all week, with almost summer-like temperatures around 30 degrees Celsius.

I went to the orchard to see if the grass needed cutting again (although my son and I had cut it a couple of weeks ago). The first thing I noticed was the whiteness of the flowering apple trees.

All the apple trees in the orchard were flowering simultaneously, and the view of the orchard in bloom was breathtaking.

As you can see, these are large, quite old trees, about 100 years old if I remember correctly. Apples are a type of Bobovec. They are an ancient variety suitable for processing into juice. They have been known in this country since the 18th century. They taste fresh and sour, are suitable for keeping over the winter, and are good for juice, cooking, and baking.

The last time they bloomed like this was about four years ago, and they have produced abundantly. As I recall, the fruit was falling from the trees, and even the branches were snapping. We pressed more than a hundred liters of apple juice that time, and if anyone is interested in more detail, I found my old post about making juice. What didn't go for juice was used for apple cider vinegar.

I love how flowery your apple trees look, without a doubt this season they will be full of fruits @seckorama

Wonderful ❤️ the old apples are the best. Our big Apple tree in the garden finally died this year 😔 it was around 60 years old. Probably He had troubles because the ground water level here decreased.

Beautiful photos of these gorgeous old trees! I have never tasted that variety of apple. If each of those blossoms produce an apple it will certainly be a bountiful crop!

At the moment, it looks like the fruit mill and juicer could be back in action (after years in the doldrums). It's about time, too, as the older stocks (whether stewed, juice or vinegar) are slowly but surely running out.
