Owner's comments

The tree must be over 50 years old, still makes a fragile appearance. The slow growth may be caused by an earth covered budding, which spawned undesired branch development from the soil level. The problem was remedied end October 2009, yet it remains very modest in development and fruit yielding by 2012. My tree ID ref = F15
