I stopped by the Mother tree this afternoon. It had dropped most of its fruit already

Congratulations, I love seeing seedling trees fruit. Iím also interested to hear if the seedling fruit is similar to the real NDM and if it also has very thin seeds like the real deal NDM.

That's awesome! I'm with Simon, I love seeing seedling trees fruit! How long did it take from seed to produce? Thanks!

Yes the taste is similar NDM, but size shape and ripening time seems different. Took five years to flower. This is its second year.

Last fruit on tree. Others were still holding but I decided to prune the height.

Great looking seedling tree FF.
BTW , with that aggressive pruning job will you get fruit next year?

Anyway , congrats on your fruit from your seedling ... a mostly september fruiter ...seems like a winner!
