    I've been meaning to get one of these for a while now.

    I planted a Goose's Arse from Ian S., a one year maiden, planted in autumn and to my amazement it flowered in its first spring, and set 9 fruits.  That's more than my Egremont Russet managed in five years.

    I had my first russet apple this year 5 years after planting it. I've got a Tom Putt though that destroyed itself under the weight of fruit this year. It was a strong tree but split into pieces as all the larger branches ripped away from the trunk.  :/   What's a goose's arse like for flavour btw?
    Unlike the brain, the stomach warns you when it's empty.

    Haven't found out yet, it's still too young for cropping.  It's a cooker, and the supplier says that the name reflects the shape of the fruit not the flavour.
