Owner's comments

Bought in UK by relatives and brought over by air in 2002. Spent life neglected in a large pot until 2011, then planted in garden. Scheduled for transplantation to orchard, December 2013. Some fruit picked in 2012, with a pinker skin than encountered in UK. Good taste, sweeter than in UK. We are putting this down to much more sun and hotter climate. All fruit dropped in 2013.
