love flowers and chojubai list among my favorite varieties, but strive to remove buds and flowers every time I see them. This prevents the formation and fruit tree draining the energy I prefer to be applied to new branches.

Flowers in the first picture developed more than two weeks after the previous removal, and few days after removal of the last traces of color, new shoots appeared.

As Michael Hagedorn it becomes quite taken with the variety, I recommend checking Crataegus.com for more information on the variety, and I note some of the best of the variety has to offer in the post of Michael, the tiny jewels.
