Owner's comments

Can be a tree which fruits in successive years, but more often than not, fruits every other year. Apples keep well - Jan to Feb. Can be used as cooking as well as eating. Sometimes the fruit is susceptible to cracking, fruit on the lower branches is more often scabby whereas fruit on the top of the tree is very good.
