Evaluation

Very late ripening, self-fertile variety, which has very good storage qualities and is therefore well suited to extend the picking season. There is a slight bitterness that dissipates as the fruits ripen. This variety needs thorough pruning of weak and hanging branches. The very healthy tree shows no susceptibility to bacterial canker until now.
