Evaluation

Although this variety has a less attractive appearance, it is a well-known, classic gage, which is well suited for direct marketing. Gage-enthusiasts appreciate its tender and melting, sweet-spicy and very juicy flesh. Because of its high sugar content this gage is also popular for distilling.
