Mesk Egypt

A major commercial cultivar. The tree is vigorous, the fruit small to medium sized (312.5 g), yellow with a red blush, with small, corky yellow dots;

ovate-oblong (11.3 cm long by 7.4 cm wide by 6.5 cm thick) with adherent skin intermediate in thickness and fairly free of surface disease; the flesh is orange, frequently jelly-seeded, with no objectionable fibres and a sweet, agreeable taste of very good quality. The polyembryonic seed is in a moderately large (52.5 g) stone. Fruit ripens late in the season (Knight and Sanford, 1998).
