Owner's comments

Very nice non-virus indexed tree from Trees of Antiquity, planted spring of 2010. Bloomed heavily late April 2011. Seems to have set some fruit. Wiil use Surround-infused footies from Home Orchard Society. This year Seranade bacterial spray (twice in spring so far) - no mildew or other fungal disease so far. Also planted some walking onions under it (helped with black spot on roses so...). Love this tree!
