Owner's commentsRarely - if ever - troubled by aphids despite its neighbouring apple trees being heavily attacked.
Not particularly prone to pests or diseases - very resistant to powdery mildew.
Fairly vigorous, slender branches which droop under the weight of fruit.
Slender branches means that fruit spurs sometimes break off in strong winds. This is not a particular problem as the tree tends to drop very few apples in June, so the crop tends to be lots of small-medium apples and loss of a few spurs simply means bigger apples.
