Owner's comments

Planted last season and being trained as an Espalier. This tree will hopefully end up with three or maybe four tiers. May have used too smaller root stock though. I will have to wait and see. Hoping to graft Kidds Orange Red on and maybe either Tydemans Late Orange or Freyberg above the Kidds. Update October 2010: Transfered this tree to a smaller space which should allow this espalier tree to fill the spacing allocated which is 3 metres wide.
