Owner's commentsThis tree grows in a container of 50 litres. Soil is pure compost and the tree is fertilized with organic fertilizer. Growth is good, but could be better. It is better to grow this in the soil than in a container. It is a heavy bearer, so all energy goes into the fruits and growing has a kind of secondary priority. Nice apple, not too much taste on these, but is a very good early sweet, juicy apple. Excellent apple to eat in the summer.

Nice and healthy tree. Grows well in a container with pure compost, but must be fertilized and watered. Sets lots of fruits, so this tree has to be thinned in order to get decent size fruits. There s not much flavour in this apple. Nice early apple variety. Supp. Got at first 2 kg of apples. Needs to be picked successionally. So more apples to come. This apple has the most perfect sweet/tart balance.
