Owner's comments

This tree has been left alone since planting. I have neglected it and never had any fruit from it. Now I'm revisiting it with the goal of reviving it. It currently has 4 main branches, one horizontal the rest vertical. I plan on pruning it over multiple years to try to develop branches closer to the ground.
