Selected from the USDA repository row of pomegranates by Prof. Lovell in 1984. Like Mae, this is a dessert pomegranate par excellence. Form slightly oblate, calyx erect and flaring, pale pink with a light marbling of red. Carpels light red, occasionally pink, large, remarkably crisp, good juice yield, tart enough to please most palates, a superior variety for eating out of hand. Few spines in growth. Not require high heat, but late, mid October.
