Owner's comments

This tree is huge! It is about 60' wide and 35' tall. It develops about 1500 lbs of fruit annually. I estimate it is between 80-100 years old. This area was an early homestead near a ferry boat stop on the North Fork Lewis River. I have about 19 old trees and harvest and sell the fruit each season.
