We have not been growing this variety long enough to produce fruit and there is no information available on growing it in the US. Bred from crosses of French varieties Triumph of Vienna and Olivier de Serres it may also be know as “Parisian”. The fruit is descried as large, russeted, very sweet with a little acidity. The trees are said to be small in other online descriptions but, that may be because it’s grown on a quince stock in Europe.
