Owner's comments

This is the first year I have allowed the tree to crop. The initial fruit set was good, and required thinning. The branches require to be tied in to supports as they are not strong enough to bear the weigh of any fruit near the tips. Severe canker on the main stem, but this was from wind damage in storms last year.
