The trees are extremely beautiful when full of developing or mature fruit, they are spectacular during the autumn months when the large leaves turn dazzling shades of yellow, orange and a deep, blazing red. A mature tree can reach a height of 15-40 ft depending on the variety and on growing conditions and is an awesome sight to see.
