Edit Variety Information

Variety Information

VarEditNL
Common names: Maracas
Color : Red
General Comments: -The name comes from the peculiar trait that if rubbed, it will release a “shampoo like” smell.
-It produces flowers that come out on the cone that must be taken off as they will rot and turn the cone mushy and smelly.
-At the beginning of the season, the cones are yellowish and small and produce the least amount of flowers. Later on the cones grow taller and yellow, and at the end of the season they are peach, and it produces more flowers.
