Not as freely cropping as Golden Hornet (yet, only had it two years) but much bigger fruit. Don't last as long as the GH, medium early, gone by Christmas for me. Very large crabs 3-4 cm. Strong tree though.

I come back to Blackmoors time and time again because the fruit stock is second to none; the customer service is excellent; the packaging is sturdy; despatch is swift ie a few days rather than weeks. Again, this Butter Ball I have just received is one fine specimen. Thankyou so much everyone at Blackmoors. I love my tree!
