Owner's comments

This has been one of the most pest-prone trees in my orchard but much of this is owing to the lack of a comprehensive management program. As of 2014, there has been two solid years of production. In 2013, the fruit was sweeter due to favorable weather (warm sunny days and cool nights?). Flavor has been excellent when good.
