Description
Two images of Cramahe's oldest apple tree.

Located in Cramahe Township just east of Colborne.

Information from a researcher (June): “As discussed I am attaching three photos of the old apple tree. I determined through the internet that it is a St. Lawrence not a Ben Davis. The age is estimated at 160 years old. It has been speculated by many including the editor of "Ontario Gardens" whom discussed this tree at a conference in British Columbia last year, that it may be the oldest still producing apple tree in Canada. I can`t prove either the age or oldest producing. The age estimate has been handed down to us from past owners and their families. These are pictures from last spring [2013]. I`ve got her "good" side, only the front half is alive and the poor thing has been pretty much hollow for years.”
