Cacaks Fruchtbare is well known for its good baking characteristics and therefore is widely planted in orchards. This high yielding variety allows for high picking rates, but a thorough fruit-thinning is necessary to prevent biennial bearing. Important to mention is the high susceptibility to Plum Plox Virus of this variety.
