Description

New Product!

Honey-sweet, and simply divine eating. The pale chartreuse skin is very slightly tart against the luscious, sweet pale amber flesh. Fruit is exquisite fresh, but also dries beautifully. “Closed eye” when ripe; helps resist splitting and souring. Minimal pruning needed, and grows well in containers. Heat- and drought-tolerant, though some fruit drop may occur if tree is dry for too long a period. For some reason, deer are not terribly interested in this variety. In warmer zones, a first crop is possible in late July and again in mid-September. Self-pollinating.
