Owner's comments

Planted bare root winter 2011 and leaves starting emerge from buds now. Despite the OP stance on the flavour quality of Discovery apples, I absolutely love them. I'd rather a bag of these come harvesting time than any number of posh chocolates or sweets - a real treat. Can't wait till next year!
