Owner's comments

Purchased as 2-year-old, first planted in a pot and that produced a few, very small, fruit after 2 more years. We then moved house and the tree was planted out in winter 2010/2011. I stripped off all developing fruits in the first summer. Tree is irrigated by underground soak hose. Tree is now 6 years old and currently (July 2012) has 5 fruits.
