Description

Well known on the island of Cyprus as Vazanata or Maxiles, this large purple skinned fruit with amber flesh was introduced into the US by the well know fruit hybridist from San Antonio Texas, Eddie Fanick. It is very large and very sweet. It is good fresh or dried. Good Breba crop and main crop. Good on the coastal hot inland climates. Ever-bearing habit.
