Owner's comments

The tree was originally a bush shape. I moved it in the fall and trimmed the main branches. It now grows as a single branch along the side of my large garden pond (13,000 gal.); supported by the bamboo fence. It grows horizontally about 2 feet off the ground. It is loaded with fruit this year.
