Owner's comments

The tree was probably planted when the house was built early in the 20 century. It is not in particularly good condition due to age and has not been particularly well looked after over the years however it still crops extremely well. The fruit is sharp but almost eatable off the tree, it makes excellent juice and is a great cooker.
