This fruit tree was specially selected for our Western U.S. climate and will produce delicious, fresh juicy fruit every year. Needs 450 hours below 45F. Easy to grow, also a wonderful ornamental addition to the landscape providing a dramatic display of flowers in the spring.
Very large yellow fruit has a delicate, semi-acid flavor. Ripens mid season, with red blush, firm skin, and a rich, sweet flavor. Clingstone. Bears consistently. Vigorous tree. Ripens early August. Great for canning.
