Versatile fruit on a beautiful tree. Vigorous tree develops an upright, spreading form. Striking dark green leaves turn a rainbow of colors in fall, from deep reds and oranges to purple. Fruit is a heart-shaped cone with deep orange-red skin and orange flesh. Taste is astringent until soft ripe, with an apricot-plum flavor. Contains vitamins A and C and has lots of fiber. Mature fruit can be frozen, then thawed again to mimic ripening. Great for fresh use or as a puree in baking and cooking. Ripens October. Grafted. Self-pollinating.
