Henriette (S) is a cracking tolerant, very productive variety in the ripening time between 'Kordia' and 'Regina'.
The crop load is significantly higher than 'Kordia' on average. The picking rate is high due to the long stalk and the loosely spread fruits. This variety is suitable as pollinator for 'Regina' because of the late blossom. On poor soils the growth rate of GiSelA™ 5 can be too low. The production of blind wood can be prevented with consistent pruning, because Henriette (S) rejuvenates well.
The given ripening period is based on our climate zone. There may be changes in other cultivation regions.

A minimum order of 50 trees per fruit grower is required!
