Owner's comments

I read too late, that with M27 i should not have allowed the tree to bear fruit until it was the size i wanted. it seems to have stalled at a very small diminutive size. crops were so heavy the tree bent into an S shape. fine fruit but very scabby. will have to pay more attention to lime/sulfur spray schedule.
