The male parent (i.e., the pollen parent) was the product of the cross of the ‘Meikrotal’ variety (U.S. Plant Pat. No. 6,087) and ‘Noacas’ variety (non-patented in the United States). ...The description is based upon the observation during June of plants of the new variety at an age of approximately five years while budded on Rosa froebelli rootstock and growing outdoors at Le Cannet des Maures, Var, France.
