Notes from GRIN
Fruit: size large; low chilling requirement, Golden Delicious type. Yellow fruit with slight tinge of blush. Refreshing, crisp, sweet-tart flavor, more tart than Golden Delicious. Strong, early bearing, prolific, scab resistant tree; somewhat self-pollinating, but yields are improved when pollinated with Dorsett Golden. Good pollinator for Anna. Tree: very precocious; productive. Ripens early to late June depending on location. (Ripens in Israel beginning of July). Requires from 100-400 hours of chilling. Good for hotter areas of the South.

Developed in: Israel
Zabidani (local variety) x Golden Delicious.
