NOTE 2: "The fruit of any tree will change from farm to farm depending on the farmer's cultural practices, particularly with regard to pruning and fertilising, as well as differences in soil and climate variations. In vigorous young trees the date of ripening and fruit characteristics will differ from those of mature trees. Over time, the normal characteristics of the variety will develop as the tree matures. Over fertilising young trees to increase the vigour, can have a detrimental effect on the quality of the fruit and or the productivity"
