Notes and observations
Information from IVIA: "The trees are vigorous and thorny. It is productive and does not re-flower much. The fruit is slightly smaller than that of 'Verna'. The rind is smooth and thin, the shoulders round, and the apex small and sharp. The juice yield is high with elevated acidity level and medium number of seeds."
"It is a new selection found in Spain, vigorous tree with presence of thorns, the shape of the fruit is not as good as in Fino 49, fruit is elongated and sometimes has a slight neck. Seedless. Harvest is two weeks earlier than Fino 49, and productivity is somewhat lower." (from Gardiazabal et al, Proc ISCN 2001, pp 171-174).
