Growing local

This is an incredible tree. After producing many bucket loads of fruit just weeks ago, it's producing again. This time there isn't any fruit fly damage no doubt due to the slightly cooler weather. Once the fruit starts turning a pale golden colour I can crop, though the longer they're left on the tree the better, but if left too long they fall and ruin themselves.

This plant crops incredibly well but in the last few years the rotten FF have wreaked havoc. This crop coming up to the cooler weather is relatively unscathed.
