Planted four years ago and still not fruiting. This pic was taken in winter; will look much better during summer. Purchased from Daleys.
August 2009: No growth activity. Pruned the tree.
September 2009: No growth activity recorded. Applied sulphate of potash and watered in. Lost all its leaves, and tiny leaf buds are beginning to appear.
October 2009: Leaves have sprouted all over and looking healthy.
November 2009: Flowers have appeared and we have tried hand pollination, with a very small soft brush to collect pollen from male, then transferring onto female. So far, no signs of activity.
December 2009 to February 2010: Lots of new leaves but I have decided to take it out due to the required hand pollination which has yet to bear fruit over the past few years. May put an R2E2 in its place.
