Owner's comments

This is a young tree bought last year -2009 -I think 2 years old now 3 years. It flowered well in April and set fruit. I reduced these down to 2, the wind has since taken one and the one remaining is coloured nicely, a bit small but looking good. My father plant this variety during the war as Cox's was considered difficult to grow in our area.
