Owner's comments

This is very easily grown tree, producing regular crops of immense and unblemished apples. They look astonishingly good but taste dissapoints. A very short window when these are eatable in early September Tastet is othersise not good, apples hang on the tree until they rot and very soon flesh turns fibrous. I do not reccommend this variety for taste
