Owner's comments

An amazingly reliable cropper. Has broken branches under the weight more than once. I do nothing to it but we have good fertile soil. Bought the tree for it's name (Daughter Katy) but have been delighted. Short eating season but fab when at peak ripeness. Knocks spots off Discovery in my opinion & a week or so earlier. Recently juiced our surplus crop in a friend's press. All agreed was the best juice we've ever tasted. Highly recommended.
