        Thanks Art and Rafael. I'm hoping that it keeps growing right up to December.

            But what would you do without all the snow and cold? I almost moved out of New England once but I liked the actual seasons too much to do it. Although this last winter has me thinking that spending sometime where it's warmer in the winter months would be nice.

          That tree looks real healthy! I just got this same variety a couple weeks ago.

              DLR has been a good grower for me but was slow to fruit. Finally after third year in the ground I got one fruit. Anybody have different experiences?

                Harvey....how does DLR mp root? I would assume very easily.... Thinking it might be a great rootstock for.....black Madeira perhaps??

                  It seems to root fine but I don't recall how vigorous the roots are, etc. I think that there are probably more vigorous varieties and something invaluable like BT has worked well as rootstock for me but I could also see trying Maroc Noir which has been my strongest grower.
