Blue Frost (Syn. Azura) Nr. 7302

The dark blue, beautifully pruinose fruits gave this variety its name. Due to its high sugar levels together with a pleasant acidity ‚Azura‘ is a good choice as dessert fruit as well as for baking purposes. The tree can be easily cultivated and the healthy dark green leaves complete the attractive appearance.
