"Fruit medium or below, sometimes nearly large. Form roundish ovate varying to roundish conic, flattened at the base and often narrowing sharply towards the apex, pretty symmetrical. Stem medium to long, slender. Cavity acute to acuminate, deep, rather narrow, sometimes slightly furrowed, often russeted. Calyx small, closed, pubescent. Basin small, often oblique, shallow, narrow, obtuse to abrupt, somewhat furrowed, wrinkled. Skin tough, smooth, glossy, greenish-yellow, mottled and blushed with red, conspicuously splashed and striped with bright carmine and partly covered with a light bloom. Dots whitish or with russet point, numerous and small towards the cavity, scattering, large and often irregular towards the basin. In fall the color is rather dull but in ordinary storage it improves noticeably as the season advances, becoming bright red with a yellowish-green background. Calyx tube small, short, cone-shape. Stamens median to nearly marginal. Core distant, truncate, abaxile, medium; cells closed or open; often part of them are unsymmetrical; core lines slightly clasping. Carpels roundish, slightly emarginate, somewhat tufted. Seeds numerous, dark, medium to short, plump, acute. Flesh whitish tinged with yellow, very firm, a little coarse, moderately tender, juicy, brisk subacid, fair to good. Although not of high quality it is fairly good when compared with other very late keeping varieties. Season January to June." Beach, S.A., N.O. Booth, O.M. Taylor, and Bruce Rogers.
