They have firm, somewhat juicy flesh, that will be pink just below the skin.
The aromatic flesh has a taste which is sharp when first harvested, but which mellows and becomes sweeter in storage.
The tree has showy blossoms in the spring, and delivers large crops in October.
Good for juice. The flesh yields a pink juice.
