Owner's comments

I want an apple which last for a very long time when cooled. So I need several winter apple varieties. This is one of those chose varieties. I have not tasted it's fruit at this moment. It still has to grow for a while, and is not even a tree, it's a whip maiden kind of tree, grows slowly because of the M9 rootstock.
