Comments: "Very attractive color and shape, extremely crisp. What we really like are its keeping qualities. It stays firm in cold storage for well into the late winter and spring months even in regular storage. I think it probably keeps as well as Fuji." (Phil Baugher, Adams County Nursery).
A royalty of $1.25 is added to the base price of this tree.
