My second Tropical Anna apple

I posted recently about my first apple. It was sweet and tasty, but clearly not without its flaws.

I picked the second apple on December 29th. It was huge – almost didn’t fit in my hand. It had a few minor blemishes, but was otherwise fine.

I cut it open through the major spot, and sure enough, there was a little tiny grub – easily cut out. I’m no expert on these things – is this a fruit fly?

The rest of the apple (like the first one) was wonderfully sweet.  Now I’m hoping I get some flowers on the Pink Lady and Granny Smith tree, but nothing so far, and I think it’s getting a little late in the season to expect that.
