A red skinned mutation of Clapp’s Favorite. Totally crimson-bright on one side, dark the other, 85mm deep by 70mm dia , around 210gms, fat and dumpy, somewhat acutely pointed at the stem end. Thick stalk. The flesh is quite fine, with relatively few fibers, and the flavor is unremarkable, inoffensive. Slight acidity. Ripens well in the fruit bowl without core sleepiness. Early season, upright growth.
Pollenizers are William’s Bon Chretien, Winter Nelis and Conference.
