DESCRIPTION

Medium size fruits, oval-round shape, well netted with a hard rind. Deep orange, thick, very bold flavored flesh has a small seed cavity. Does not make a crown set. Concentrates its fruit set over a shorter period of time, thus reducing harvest time and cost. Pull when reaches full slip (net whitish in color over light green rind). Turns yellow in 2-3 hours after harvest. Good shipper.

CLASSIFICATIONS
OPEN POLLINATED

Pollination occurs by insect, bird, wind, humans, or other natural mechanisms. Because there are no restrictions on the flow of pollen between individuals, open-pollinated plants are more genetically diverse. However, as long as pollen is not shared between different varieties within the same species, then the seed produced will remain true-to-type year after year.

HEIRLOOM

This variety has a history of being passed down within a family or community, similar to the generational sharing of certain items like jewelry or furniture.
