Description of Langley Bullace Trees & Fruit:
The Langley Bullace is quite an odd looking tree. It's branches have a downward pointing habit as they emerge from the trunk, twisting upwards as they grow. Apart from that, it's a vigorous plant that becomes a heavy cropper when mature.
The nearly black fruit are too sharp for most people to eat fresh.
