Owner's comments

Purchased as 2-year-old and planted in a pot. It cropped well after 2 years. We then moved house and it 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 4 fruits.
