Owner's comments

The variety/rootstock has been somewhat anemic in our yard. Scaffolds are still pretty small in diameter. Well rooted though. Bears more or less annually and early. Fruit is pretty disappointing for most everything except drying - maes a fantastic dried apple. Perhaps because it's halfway there on the tree...
