I love to eat one of my logans and then sip on a little red wine, it tastes just like cherry medicine for one mouthful :) | David O'bryan - Mansfield, QLD 06-Jul-2011

Chose this variety based on internet descriptions of fruit taste. Extremely slow growing. Fruit rather small but nice sweet taste.

Have now (2016) moved it to a different spot with different soil and it is growing better.
