Aida (S) impresses with its high firmness, fruit size and long harvest period. The fruits hang very densely, but without clusters. When harvesting prematurely there is a pronounced bitterness, which dissipates as the fruit ripens. The very healthy foliage is striking. Because of the early, long ongoing blossom Aida (S) is suitable as a pollinator for many early to medium early flowering varieties, e.g. SATIN™ Sumele (S).
