These trees don’t grow very fast, so it is pretty exciting when it puts on a growth flush. This is actually its third flush of the year. Each one puts on a few inches, at best. Man, how long till it fruits?
In this photo, the tree’s new growth is backlit by the late-afternoon sun on a somewhat foggy day last week.
Compare to my last photo of this tree. Note how much it’s grown in a month!
