CommentsMuch slower growing than other Valencias; marked bud union incompatibility on rough lemon; round tree shape; leaf shape large, almost grapefruit-like; similar yields to Valencias of same size; in South Africa excellent size fruit, good round shape, very smooth rind texture, excellent internal quality, high juice percentages and TSS levels, seedless like Delta but slightly tougher rag, can be difficult to peel, matures same time as most Valencias.
