This unique variety, Gold Azarole bears good crops of beautiful, large, sweet and flavorful, bright golden yellow fruit.
We saw these unique fruit trees for the first time in Italy in 2001. Pest and disease free, Azarole is self-fertile and forms an attractive small tree with white, fragrant flowers and striking, red or yellow fruit which is accented by glossy, reddish-green foliage. Gold Azarole berries are great for fresh eating and preserves and about the size of blueberry. They taste similar to an apple.
