Owner's comments

This tree is in my Mother in Laws garden. She has no interest in gardening and I have sort of taken over for now. I'm interested in this tree as I picked the apples from it last year for the first time and found the apples to be fantastic. I want to propergate this tree further and start a small orchard up with some suitable complementary varieties so I'm looking for some advice and help to do this. Quite a surprise to find the tree and taste it's fruit!
