Hello Jim

The origin of my Pinockio
is from the original grower (It was the father of Dick Maas)
The original plant was a plant from headborne seedlings
this was the only plant who survived the -18°C winter near the Dutch coast
long time ago at the nursery of  Maas en van Stein In Hillegom
after many years they gave it a name because it was a clone
I will ask how the name exact is spelled on Monday
maybe this is just the Dutch name and not the registered name
