Season records for this tree

Season Blossom date Picking date / Yield Size Season notes

Fireblight continued to attack this tree, so took it out
2kg / 4lbs
Scab: Severe attack
Very wet spring and summer; major damage from black spot (apple scab) on apples. The higher apples were better. Fungus may have splashed up from rhubarb plants or lilies. Or perhaps just the massive rainfalls we had and then the fireside tree shaded it too much.
