Fruit middle sized, somewhat broadly globular. Suture rather deep at the base, but shallow at the apex, where is sometimes implanted a small acute nipple. Skin pale yellowish white next the wall; but of a beautiful red, marbled and streaked with a deeper colour on the sunny side. Flesh firm, pale yellowish white to the stone, to which it closely adheres. Juice sugary, and well flavoured. Stone middle sized, shortly ovate, thick, not deeply rugged. Ripe the beginning of September. This has been considered by some to be the same as Smith's Newington ; but it appears to me to be a dif. ferent fruit, being always more broad than long, while the other is always more long than broad, and has also more colour at the stone. 59.
