    Crisp, chewy and juicy, with champagne like subtlety. Dull reddish/orange bloom over dull greenish/yellow skin, with russetting around stem and calyx.

    Crisp, juicy and aromatic. Rather sweet, yet somewhat sharp. Green skin with red flecking and always at least some russet from the stalk downwards.

    Crisp, somewhat spicy, taste is similar to a golden russet.
