Haroma

This high-yield variety of the University of Hohenheim is very well suited for baking due to its well-balanced sugar/acidity ratio and because its stone can be removed very easily. Cut across it also impresses by its deep orange flesh. Just picked it is a juicy refreshment full of flavour. Therefore, it is a popular variety to be planted either in private gardens or by commercial fruit producers.
