That's an optimistic question zwartbles!  Obviously a useful late variety though!. 

What else can you tell us about this tree - and how long have you and it been united?

You can't tell an apple just by looking at it.  There are hundreds of different varieties out there.  The place to ask is Brogdale which has a vast 'library' of apple trees and will possibly be able to identify your tree.  They might even want cuttings from it.

Do something today that your future self will thank you for - plant a tree
