It is a medium early variety, its optimal picking time in Slovenia being between August 23th and 30th. The plants exhibit a cylindrical form of medium width, the lateral shoots being 60 cm long; they sprout also in the lower part of the plant. The vines are slightly purple, of medi­um thickness, with short internodes. The leaves are smooth and of medium size, their edges tend to become dry under unfavourable conditions. The rootstock is slightly susceptible to downy mildew, the leaves are resistant and the cones slightly susceptible. It is sensitive to aphids. The expected yield is about 2200 kg/ha. It has a fibrous root system. It is grown on moderate­ly deep clay soil; it can thrive also on loamy clay soil. It is grown in Slovenia, Austria and Hungary. Medium planting distance is required. The recommended pruning time in Slovenia is between March 25th and April 5th. An average cone is 25 mm long and the average weight of 100 dry cones is 15 g.
