Lovely colour I have the peachy/orange one they are all nice think I like them because they are some of the earliest to blossom.

Yes, me too, and fruits as well. I have Geisha Girl as well. Remember I ate one of the fruits last autumn, and I kept the seed and sowed them, so now I have baby Geishas!

Nice, hadn't thought of that. Will try that one this next back end.

It has a nice 'perfumed' taste like a pear (ish). You only need a little, added to your fruit crumble and it gives it a little extra something.

Geisha Girl was very easy to strike from cuttings too, I've just given two to my daughter. Not seen this one before, does it flower as prolifically? I must try your quincey? tip too:-)

No BA. It doesn't. It's actually a straggly looking thing with hardly any leaves. Thankfully it is in a spot where it goes pretty much unnoticed! :)

Ah well Karen, you can't have everything....think I'll just stick with the lovely Geisha Girl:-)

Yes, much nicer, I agree! I have some geisha seedlings from seed I collected in the autumn...wonder if they will come true to parent...time will tell. :)
