QUESTIONS & ANSWERS

Ask a Question
  • We had an apple tree that my dad said was a King Apple. The skin felt like it had a wax. Does your King have a waxy surface on it's skin ?

    Tomkins King is not typically waxy, while King David apples are usually waxy. Both are called King for short. This King is not waxy.
