Year: 2016

Accession: 200

Seed Source: Purchased from Seedy Saturday (Victoria, BC)

Comments:

2016 Good flavour, very pretty fruit that is an orangey-apricot shade. Some blossom drop in high heat with no cooling off at night, some delayed ripening as well. This variety does not show the pinkish colour of the other variety known as Aurega.
