The fruit is mostly long heart-shaped with scarlet skin,and the flesh tastes crisp and sweet(17.7%–19.1% TSS). The seeds are generally aborted with an abortion ratio 90% and flesh recovery of 74.7%–81.1%. The contents of titratable acid,juice vitamin C and total sugar in the pulp were 0.15%–0.25%,0.77 mg • mL-1 and 160.5 g • L-1. The average yield of top grafting was 12 000 kg • hm-2 in the 5th year. The maturity period is early to mid July in Huilai County Guangdong Province.‘Hongcuinuo’is a promising cultivar for its high quality,late-maturity,good graft compatibility,easy to flower and fructify as well as high and stable yield.
