" Fruit large, oblong-cylindrical; collared or short-necked; truncate at apex; prominent sharp-pointed conical nipple surrounded by pronounced areolar furrow, commonly deeper on one side; seeds very few. Color yellow at maturity. Rind thin, very smooth, shining; tightly adherent. Segments 8 to 9; axis medium-small and solid. Flesh color greenish-yellow; crisp and juicy; flavor highly acid with slight bitterness. Crop produced mainly in fall and early winter. Earliest of Italian varieties.
Tree vigorous, upright-spreading, usually thornless; foliage moderately dense. Leaves large and somewhat citron-like, with round-pointed blades, undulate margins, and short wingless petioles. Moderately productive but does not respond well to forcing treatment and hence grown primarily for early fruit.
