For picking and storing to eat in December and January. A very reliable cropper that normally makes a smaller tree, with its weak to moderate, rather weeping habit. The blossom is fairly frost resistant and the fruits are rather small with a green/yellow skin and russet around the stalk. This variety excels for its truly remarkable flavour for eating around the Christmas period. The flesh is pink/white and so extremely tender and juicy. It is as well that Josephine de Malines has to be stored, as without this requirement, there would certainly be none left for this purpose. An exceptional flavour and easy to grow. Pollinators include: Conference, Onward, Beth, Invincible etc.
