Ewais Egypt

A polyembryonic cultivar of major commercial importance. The tree is vigorous, the fruit small (275 g), yellow with no blush, with small, light-brown slightly corky dots, ovate-oblong in shape (11.7 cm long by 7.2 cm wide by 6.3 cm thick), with adherent skin of intermediate thickness, relatively free of disease; flesh orange, juicy but susceptible to jelly seed, with no objectionable fibre, sweet and agreeable in taste, of very good quality. The stone is large (38.5 g). Fruit ripens midseason (Knight and Sanford, 1998). In warm subtrop-ics this cultivar has shown a tendency for flowering in the warm season, with fruit ripening during the cool winter. It has good anthracnose tolerance.
