Comments

Claimed to have improved features to Murcott. Excellent market potential.
Low seeded, easy peel, irradiated Murcott. Tree growth is similar to standard Murcott. Seed counts are generally <5 and therefore it is recommended planting this variety in areas where there is low cross pollination. No detriment or leaf drop from high nutrition program.
