Owner's comments

This tree grows well enough but does not like our high rainfall. It is very susceptible to Canker and I have to keep cutting out infected branches on a regular basis and treating the tree with spray to try and reduce attacks; therefore in my area it requires high maintenance. Given a good spring it will produce an enormous crop which if thinned, make very good apples; I have kept them in my shed until April.
