This mid-season ripening, self-fertile apricot has an impressive appearance, intense flavour and good resistance to plum pox virus. The fruit flesh is very juicy and medium firm and has a tendency to become fibrous during storage. Due to this condition this variety is suitable for direct marketing and limited transport distances.
