Description

It is very similar to Bourjassote Grise, only sweeter. It is medium to large sized with a solid dark strawberry pulp and blueish colored skin. It produces a drop of resin blocking the ostiole which keeps insects out.

Tends to ripen well in cooler weather, when other varieties will not.
