Description

'Misi Luki' has the same characteristics as 'Dwarf Namwah', growing 15-20 feet tall and disease resistant. The 4" fruit has excellent flavor and are very sweet. It is best in locations not exposed to hard winds. While some say it tends to go dormant at higher temperatures than other varieties such as Goldfinger or Orinoco, others dispute this. It was reportedly selected from a high elevation in Samoa and it does seem to produce good quality fruit to 4" under cool conditions. Misi Luki is commercially grown in New Zealand.
