Owner's comments

Beautiful blossom, & fruit looks good. Useful as an early cooker, goes to fluff, makes good jelly, but doesn't keep & is a bit boring after a while. 2012 we had a total crop failure on this variety!!

Season records for this tree

    Spring blossom: 30 April
    flowers about 9 days later than last year, because of the cold and wet! Disastrous 'crop' meant no fruit to pick this year.
