Hanita (S) is characterised by its large fruits with pronounced flavour and at the same time high yield. Because of the uneven ripening several picks are necessary. Is recommended as replacement for 'Auerbacher' and 'Ortenauer' in regions with high plum pox infestation. In climates with high summer rainfall the susceptibility to Pseudomonas infection and other leaf diseases is high.
