Sweet, pure-white medium size berries (.5 – .75”) are produced by this semi-dwarf but very productive tree; the fruit is wonderful fresh eating and excellent for drying. Extra-sweet fruity flavor is very tasty on this one. Birds tend to not go for this cultivar as much because of the confusing lack of color at ripening! Non-staining fruit.
