The fruits are ready for picking mid September onwards - and suitable for eating throughout October. The fruits are medium large, round, conical, greenish yellow with an orange and red flush and stripes. The skin is thin and tender, and the flesh creamy white, tender and very juicy. The flavour is exceptional. A heavy and regular cropper, that is superb when eaten straight from the tree. The trees are moderately vigorous, upright and then spreading. A very popular garden variety that always does well with the advantage that it also excels in the north. An excellent choice for a difficult site, except in the humid west, where it can be prone to canker. Hardy and adaptable elsewhere. Suitable pollinators are: Greensleeves and Coxs Orange.
