A 16-18 lb diploid hybrid. Fruit have shape and rind pattern of Crimson Sweet, but flesh is golden. High sugar content. Actually flesh is pale yellow and the rind pattern is similar to Dixie Queen, Chris Cross, or Jubilee. Much lighter greens than Crimson Sweet. Both the markings and flesh color are those of Yellow Doll. Fruit is 2-3 times larger than Yellow Doll. It is sweet but texture and overall taste are inferior to Yellow Doll.
