Season records for this tree

  • 2017

    First season and it was very hot and dry, I watered it regularly but it still became stressed, aphids being farmed by ants almost destroyed the new growth, I added grease bands and the aphids were eaten by ladybirds and the tree thrived, good growth and a fair amount fruit for the first year.
