Evaluation

This robust variety is impressive with its size and storability. The premature fruits develop their colour very early, but only when fully mature they are acceptably juicy and aromatic. When the first fruits start falling, the ideal harvest time is reached. The fruits are suited for wholesale because they travel well. Somewhat negative to mention is the pronounced acidity and lacking over colour.
