Apple tree Dobrynya: reviews of gardeners
- Nikolay Vladimirovich, Leningrad region: “I can say for sure that the Dobrynya apple tree begins to bear fruit a little later than other representatives of the ranetki. And the harvesting period begins at the very beginning of autumn, in the first half of September. At the same time, apples of the Dobrynya variety can be stored practically until the end of winter. "
- Ekaterina Viktorovna, Moscow region: “I like the apple variety Dobrynya. I make various preparations from apples: juices, jams, preserves and even mashed potatoes. I know that the disease resistance of this variety is average, but either because of good care for it, or because my apple tree is still relatively young, it has never been sick. "
