Apples reddening already as well

This shot shows one of the many apples I have on my trees. The sunshine and warmth have been doing a wonderful job helping them ripen. No rain but they get watered daily by me. Now I can't wait till late September/early October for them to be ready. So are your fruits doing well this spring? HAPPY POSTINGS FROM GRANDPA BOB!!~

Hi Grandpa Bob, my apples are at about the same stage. The James Grieve tree will have ripe fruit in early September but my Boskoop takes until mid October. I hope that I don't get hit with grubs eating into them since I don't spray them with chemicals. Some years are bad others they stay clear.

Ripening apples in June?? Surely they won't be fully ripe and ready to pick til September or October! Or do they now have apples that don't need that nip of first frost. I'm way behind the times when it comes to apples. Our orchard, when I was a kid, had a lot of OLD species, like winesaps, jonathans, black bens, roman beauties. . .which we never started picking until after first frost. They were all green at this time of year.
