Owner's comments

tree is growing very slowly. Not terribly healthy. Not cropping yet (7 year old tree, still relatively small) Winters here are long, have 3 to 6 feet of snow, and temperatures vary, with average of -8 to -15 degrees C., about 10 to 15 days will see -20 to -25 degrees C., and there is usually a damp northwesterly wind off the lakes.
