Owner's comments

Average resistance to pests. Good resistance to diseases. Fruit is best snipped off or left to drop because fruit spurs (with next year's blossom buds!) easily break off the tree if you try to pick unripe fruit. The fragile fruit spurs can also break off in strong wind. Very fast growing. Lots of long, thin, straggly branches that droop considerably, under the weight of fruit.
