Thanks CJV. The two dwarfs have been received and are planted. The lit says they are self pollinating. But we shall see. I have plenty of room for more trees, and some are saying I should plant summer apple trees.

The local historical society reported that a century ago Missouri was the leading US producer of apples. And I do know of lots of old apple orchards around. So I hope they do well (unless their diseases are also highly developed here).

We were asking if Johnny Appleseed made it to Missouri, but they thought he worked the Ohio valley. Wikipedia article is here--

"Johnny Appleseed, was an American pioneer nurseryman who introduced apple trees to large parts of Pennsylvania, Ohio, Indiana, and Illinois, including the northern counties of present day West Virginia."

Apparently he died in Ft. Wayne, IN.

Apples are always welcome at my house (although I don't know what I will do with them if I actually get 10 bushels off my two trees). I suppose I will make gifts to friends and neighbors (maybe in return for an occasional pie).
