Oval / pear shaped.
Thick green coloured skin with small corky speckles (lenticels). Stays green coloured when ripe. Skin shrivels at stem end if picked when not fully mature.
Medium large to large (312 – 500g).
June from the North Eastern parts of the country until late September from KwaZulu Natal. Out of season fruit is available late in the year.
Ripens quickly out of cold storage. Skin prone to lenticel damage. Although cosmetically unappealing, this does not effect internal quality. Store at +6 degrees C – NOT COLDER, fruit prone to chilling injury.
Excellent, rich and nutty.
