Does anyone know the best time to visit Panamint City to get apples from the tree at Shotgun Mary's. I was told October, but I went last Ocober and the tree was bare and no fruit or dried apples on the ground.

Thanks all.

I have apple trees at my cabin in the San Jacinto Mountains (5,300') that are volunteers. They rarely give apples. There are trees in town that do produce apples with greater regularity.

In PC, the elevation probably prevents apple trees, even those which can produce apples in that environment, from having a yearly crop. Apples like cold climates, generally, and there are many, cold climate apple varieties; however, I would doubt that a tree in Panamint City would be a consistent producer.

There's a fantastic apple tree at 4100 ft north of Lone Pine at the base of the Inyos. Just south of Reward Mine. Don't know if that means anything but that tree really produces. Green apples that are great in pies.

Thanks Larry and Norman. I'll have to check out the apples near Lone Pine.
