A real keeper. Is it fertile?

I hesitated to post this one for fear you guys wouldn't believe
the color accurate. This is how it looks 2nd day. Falls are black
first day open.
Last year I swore an oath I'd never put pollen on Winesap again,
since nearly everything I got was almostÂidentical to it in form and
branching. This one is either a year late with it's maiden or has
improved beyond recognition. Can't believe I would have missed that
beard last year, though, no matter what else was going on.Â
It has a triple terminal and 2 actual,Âgood branches.ÂI was so amazed,
I didn't believe the marker. Went clear to the start and counted rows
to be sure.Â
BTW - the favorite spring maiden has a redder variegata sib with a
spent primary and blooming on increase. NotÂas wide, but not bad.
More reason to suspect the pod parent could have rebloomed, given
half a chance.Â
Chuck - That's exactly what I thought. Quite a gamble, though.
