    Fantastic crop but hard to access as the tree is so tall! Had it cropped two years ago. It missed a season but this year it has stormed back with an amazing amount of apples. I believe this is one of the earliest trees planted in London and it has a a double trunk that is fused together which I think is unique. Aplles ready to pick around beginning of August, Some still to fall in mid september.
