If by Evans you mean Bali, they are prolific for me. Have not had a
problem with mold ever, have had huge problems with robins deciding
I've planted them for them. I have a few planted in front of the
place I work which the robins haven't discovered and a young not full
size tree is putting out well over a gallon fruit. I've also planted
around 100 of these at my vineyard project.
