The Trust apple tree originated from Sainte-Julienne, Quebec. When we discovered it, we asked its owner, a seventy year old woman named Miss. Hetu, if she knew how old the apple tree was. She replied: 'It was already there when I got married. The ex-owner, Mr. Patry, planted it. Believe me, I have made tons of apple pies with its fruit for more than 50 years. If you want apples, take them all. Me, I need rest now!' We then named it Trust as we just dicovered an apple tree we could trust, the one that gives apples every year, without any spraying.
