Owner's comments

Like many of the fruit trees that were already established on our property, this one is poorly situated, in this case, it is heavily shaded by nearby Douglas firs. Nonetheless, it pulls of at least a light crop each year. If the tree were better located I would re-graft it as we are not big fans of this variety and make little use of the fruit.
