Owner's comments

Very vigorous growth but canker led to much serious pruning, cropping still great this year despite the awful weather!

    Size: 2.0m / 6.7ft high   3.0m / 10.0ft wide
    Good crop, too many to eat fresh even giving many away. Good flavour, maybe beter but medical treatment stopped me savouring that to the full. Canker, again hitting the tree hard.
