Owner's comments

This tree grows in N.E. Scotland in an old Victorian Walled Garden used for organic fruit and veg. Very good deep soil. Cool climate and subject to periodic strong winds. This tree is very healthy. Cropping is average. Apples are large and prone to bitter pit. They make very good apple sauce but don’t keep.
