Owner's comments

An old tree, probably 1970's, has one weaker branch of another variety at present un identified. Is in direct competition with a conifer hedge and fell over, pulling out of ground in July 2007 floods. Ended up with the chickens putting beak marks in most of the fruit! Tree is now held up with ratchet straps to the conifer trunks, but seems to be growing better now than before 2007.
