Medium sized oval shaped fruit with a very attractive smooth shiny thin green skin. Easy to peel with a medium to large seed. Yellow-green flesh of a light flavour, smooth and silky. The skin remains green though darkens slightly when ripe. Fruit size is from 280grms to 500grms.


Habit - Avocado tree forms a thick canopy giving dense shade with it's large, dark green, leathery leaves. Grows toΒ 5m x 4m.

Pollination - Light yellow/green flowers appear in abundance on the end of the branches in spring. 'B' Type flowering where the female part opens in the afternoon on the first day for 2 to 3 hours then closes. The male part opens the morning of the second day. Hence cross pollination of two varieties helps in the warmer climates. In the cooler climates opening and closing of the flower tends to overlap therefore making them more self-fertile. Bees and flies are the pollinators. Cross pollination with Hass and Reed will improve fruit set.

Harvest - Mid-winter variety. 12 months from flowering to harvest in cool climates. Harvest from June to July.
