Skin pale yellowish-white, slightly tinged with green on the shaded side, and of a beautiful deep red next the sun. Flesh yellowish-white, deep red at the stone, to which it adheres; in warm seasons it is of a vinous, sugary, and musky flavour, but otherwise it is insipid. In this climate it rarely if ever attains perfection. Flowers large. Glands kidney-shaped. Ripe the middle and end of October.
