Who: Debbie Drechsler (debdrex)

No specimen available

This appears to be a youngster and also seems to be the third fruiting on this tree. There’s an old one right next to it and a large one above. This tree also appears to be struggling with infection by some other organism, possibly Phytophthora ramorum (Sudden Oak Death). It was 9cm high and 8 wide.


This is now 15cm wide.
