This undemanding, Plum pox virus (PPV) tolerant variety is also suitable for colder locations and convinces not only with its early and rich yield, but above all with its very good taste and velvety skin. Very good choice for both professional commercial cultivation and private gardens.
Crossing: President x Auerbacher, breeder Dr. Walter Hartmann, University of Hohenheim, 1980
Vigour: medium to strong, upright, with hanging fruit wood, branches may break if overhanging. The formation of the shoots in the first two years is recommended so that the branch outlet becomes less steep. In the later years only a thinning cut is required.
Fruits: medium-sized, 35 - 40 g, oblong, medium-firm, bright medium-blue with strong wax coating. Outstanding table fruit with the best baking quality.
Pulp: golden yellow, in some years only semi-freestone
Taste: harmonious with fine acidity, distinctive aroma
Harvest season: mid-August to mid-September, long harvest time
Yield: early onset, regular and high
Special notes: susceptibility to wood diseases should be considered when selecting the site. Due to Pseudomonas susceptibility, trees have to be cut in late spring.
