Owner's comments

Never heard from this apple, but since i'm in search of my favourite apple, I read several descriptions about this apple and decided to have a go and graft this upon a rootstock. Last year it had blossoms and few apples, but the rains made the fruits go bad. This tree is only 1 metre long I think, but since it wants to produce a crop, I will allow one or two apples to remain on the tree, for a taster.
