Trait What Should Be Considered As Good
Flesh Color Orange
Fruit Size 10 ounces (284 g) or more
Seediness Seeds the size of a nickel (19 mm dia.) and less than 12 per fruit
Flavor & Quality of Flesh This is a very subjective trait, but typically mild, sweet, smooth texture and no unpleasant aftertaste are desired.
Appearance Skin relatively free from blemishes; fruit uniformly shaped.
Quality After Storage Two to three weeks of refrigerated storage should not greatly reduce eating quality.
Time of Ripening Fruit should ripen between mid-September and mid-October. Later ripening limits usefulness in the northern U.S., while earlier ripening does not take full advantage of the growing season.
Winter Hardiness Plant should overwinter in zone 5.
