Owner's comments

Purchased about 6 years ago, at approx 2-3 yrs I think. We got it from a Rona store's nursery. They don't sell this tree often, so it was lucky. Very difficult to find even though they are originally from here!

    Harvest: 3rd week August
    Our little tree did not get enough sun this year because the neighbouring tree grew faster. Apples were few, but delicious.
