Owner's comments

Got this scion wood for free. It does not grow well on my mother tree, a rubinola, which is a very vigorous tree indeed. Since I cannot toss a present I grafted it. Internet descriptions say that this apple has an intensive taste and a hint of cooled sugar cane. If I would graft it on a rootstock, I would choose to graft it onto a very vigorous one.
