Storage storage over several weeks possible


Vigour weak to medium strong, good branching, typical is the yellowish foliage in spring and early summer
Crop load stable and warmer temperatures at the time of flowering and post-flowering are crucial for a high and regular crop, fruit bearing on perennial wood, fruits stay stable on the tree for a long time, so far no heat damages observed
