Owner's comments

Hasn't cropped yet (7 year old tree, planted in 2004). Very vigorous, healthy tree - but hasn't blossomed yet (late to bear, I suppose). Waiting patiently.. 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.
