Highly recommendable yellow-fleshed, mid-season peach, that stands out because of its smooth skin, well coloured, large fruits and exceptional taste. The fruits also colour well in the shade with almost 100 % crimson over colour.
The susceptibility to winter frost is low. Because of the deep stalk cavity this variety has a tendency to rupture during picking when fully ripe.
