History & Discovery
My friend Dr Oliver Prys Jones found this late cooker by the old cottage that was occupied by his ancestors from 1790 to 1920. Cooks to a firm puree.
Rootstock & Eventual Tree Size
All fruit trees are grafted onto rootstocks. The rootstocks determine eventual tree size.
Bigger trees are more robust & produce more fruit, but take up more space.
Always choose a bigger rootstock if you need extra anchorage or your soil is poor (very wet, dry or rocky). Small trees cannot compete with grass and weeds.
