Owner's comments

Planted at 45* angle crossed with another tree (gray Pearmain) slow to leaf out but buds are finally swelling 5/11/14. Purchased from Burnt Ridge Nursery nice people nice tree well packed for transport. I planted one of these years ago at another house, it was my most reliable producer and very good apples but I think it really likes heat so maybe something else if that is not your situation.
