Notes and observations
1/14/1988, EMN: Slight to pronounced pink flesh color. No foliage variegation at all.
TJSW, 2020: This selection is known to have reversions back to yellow fleshed fruit. With the Variegated Pink Flesh Eureka selection, this situation is easy to detect because the reverted branches will lose variegation as well. With this Italian Pink selection you are unable to see if the fruit is from a reverted branch until the fruit is cut open which is problematic.
