Thanks guys. Hobbler, it looks like we may be out of the woods after the last few nights. Tuesday I was up at 3:00 AM burning. Slight frost but no damage.
Hillhopper check out Zestar!. One of my favorite apples and I believe you could grow them down there. Great flavor similar to HC's, good for fresh eating and cooking, and they mature early. Up here around the 20th of August. Easy to grow , but very susceptible to scab.
Pristine is another. Very good eating and have very good resistance to scab and fireblight.
There are tons, but these are a couple off hand that you might like.
Research varieties here....
