Thanks for posting the video. Our second leaf Honeycrisp here at Royal Oak Farm are coming along very much like yours and we did get about 10 apples per tree average on a vertical axe system that we converted to tall spindle at 2nd leaf. We planted B9 rootstock as well on 8 foot centers and are now adding double the amount of trees by switching to the tall spindle at 4 foot centers within the same acreage. The video let me see a good comparision to our trees.
