The fruit is medium to large with an average length of 10.8 cm and a width of 8.5 cm. The average weight is 470 g (range: 380-560 g). The shape is oblong to ovate and tends to be plump; the basic colour is light yellow
with a pink/red blush; lenticels are distinct and numerous. The fruits are often borne in clusters. The beak is conspicuous with a notable depression above it. The yellow juicy flesh is relatively free from fibres, moderately
sweet with a good flavour. It has a remarkable resistance to anthracnose and powdery mildew. Yields are satisfactory and quite regular. It is a promising variety in Kenya since the fruits have a very long storage life.
