Crisp, creamy white flesh; mild, sweet with a hint of spice. Tastes best when tree ripened. Hangs on the tree in good condition for 4-6 weeks so often requires multiple harvests during the season.

Shipping Note:  Our fruit trees and berries are delivered to you bareroot during their winter dormancy from January through May depending on USDA zone. Trees are shipped with your invoice and helpful planting directions. There is no minimum quantity required but shipping rate for an individual tree is expensive since UPS/Fed Ex charge a dimensional weight and an additional handling fee to ship a tree. You'll find it's cost effective to consider a handful of trees,vines or our helpful Tree Starter Kits.
