Owner's comments

The fruit tends to be small. This year I experimented by removing excess fruits after the June drop and then again once more reducing each clump to two fruits and the size is much better. It will be interesting to see if this fruit reduction will alter the biennial cropping pattern. Superior flavour and storage.
