A productive heirloom variety from the 1850's that remains durable and reliable.
The dusky violet purple circular fruits have a juicy greenish yellow flesh and an excellent flavour. The fruits are easily stoned and suitable for dessert or culinary purposes. A long flowering period ensures this variety often gives a crop when others may fail.
Partly self fertile but for the best results pollinate with Marjories Seedling, Swan, Groves Late Victoria, Jubilee or Verity.
Season late August-September.
