Owner's comments

Not sure about the variety - chosen this as it is the closest from the picture. Crop has been enormous this year - we are unable to harvest even a quarter of them. Not so big in previous years, and also texture and taste seems to have improved greatly this year. 2014 update - huge amount of blossom.
