yes they are true to type, you might get some weird shaped fruit with some in the beginning but they always turn out good after a couple fruitings.

JF I did not think they were true to seed. I have 4 one fruited a few years ago. 1 is maybe 5 years old never fruited. 2 are new just grafted this year The 2 old ones are both grafted.
