Owner's comments

Not prone to pests or diseases, other than scab on the leaves. Fruits very acid-sweet flavour; need to mellow in storage for best eating quality. Vigour appears to be about average; not nearly as vigorous as would be expected of a variety listed as "T3" (vigorous) and which is also reputed to be one of those most suited to the Eastern UK and shallow sandy soils.
