    Hi, moved house last year and found two apple trees at the back of the garden. They have suffered years of being smothered by fir trees which I cut down not long after I moved in. They do seem to have a new lease of life since getting more light although their trunks and branches remain covered in a mossy type of growth. The tree with the green apples has lost a number of its fruit at different stages of growth but the leaves are looking good. The tree with the red apples hasn't lost as many fruits and has a big crop which appears to be nearing maturity, but overall the tree doesn't look as healthy. Both have produced some fruits that appear to have bad spots on them. I have no experience of apple trees but I know these definitely need some TLC and I would really welcome any information that can help me identify them and any tips on how to revive them as much as possible..
    Thanks in advance..

    I would say they are both cooking apples.
