    Hello to Canada, is this tree resistant against monilia laxa? Best regards, R. Opitz

    I have 2 trees of this variety,1 of which gets approx 1hour more of sunlight due ti its situation facing directly south against the back of a shed. The flavours differ completely, the one in more sun is considerably sweeter yet the other has a more complex flavour
