Owner's commentsThis Liberty was planted in spring of '07, a whip from Raintree. It has been stripped of blossoms so far in order to grow stout enough to produce fruit. First crop in '10 definitely slowed woody growth. Excellent crop, despite horrid year for gardening. This is a fine little tree and apple.
