Okay I have to ask, just what is Rambo Apple Sauce? My first thought is "First Blood" and that's just not right!
Canning has been going on all summer at our house, but that's above my pay grade. The Wife does it all.

My mouth is watering just thinking about a sampling party.

The wife and I were at the York Fair today and bought a ticket for the tractor raffle,to be held at steamorama. I had to push my wife around the fairgrounds in her wheelchair because her broken ankle is still healing from the second operation. She may not make it to the show but I will be there. And yes you are making me hungry! You make some delicious homemade treats.

Here is the link to the show:http://www.steamoramapa.com/ Hope to see some members there.

I tried to post some better info but did something wrong. The Rambo is a variety of apple. I'm sure that Dan made his applesauce from this kind of apple. Hopefully he will give you a better answer.

Yes, summer rambo is a variety. You can make sauce out of any apple , but lodi, transparant, and rambo s give a little tartness, which is great over cake or i like it with a baked potato.
The different varieties come in at different times, and just like peaches we try to can acouple of jars of each for some variety
it's great at the end of the season to see the shelves in the ground cellar full !

OK, That is a variety I'm not familiar with. When I was buying fruit trees this spring I never ran across that one. I" ll look next spring.
I know the wife wanted a good cooking apple.
I planted 5 this spring. 1 jonathan, 1 jomagold, 1 (I dont remember the name) 1 delicious, & 1 Wolf River. When I went back for a Granny smith they were sold out.
I also planted 3 peach and one self pollinating pear.

I hope to plant a few more next spring, I would not mind having about 25 fruit trees over the next few years.

I really don't remember. the tags are still on the trees,I'll go out tomorrow after work and see. I do remember there were two of one variety and toe of another.
The Peaches are kind of a long shot, they are so early blooming there is a chance of bloom frostbite. I'm in Zone 5
I did plant them on an east facing slope near the top of the hill , hoping being on higher ground will reduce chance of frost.
I also planted 3 high bush Blueberry qand 3 Mancurian Apricot. Black berries, Black Rasberries, 4 varieties of Red Rasberries and Strawberries.

Here in central pa. Is as far north that you can grow peaches, and apricots are a long shot . Frost usually gets the blossoms
the best free stone peaches in this area are sun hi and loring

Well I can kind of tell you, Two are Belle of Georgia Peach. The label has blow off thother anf I don't know. The Apple I could not rember is aa Beacon.
Yes Apricots are a long shot. That's why I chose The Manchurian Bush Apricot. Manchuria has an extremely harsh winter so I hope they will work.
I planted them on a slope facing North in hopes the ground will not warm up enough for them to bloom till late enough they are not at risk of Frost.
I know of a guy who lives just south of Niagra Falls Ny that says they do fine in their climate.
