The leaves usually have 5 lobules of great measure, with some variations in the shape of the foliage in the same tree. Black brevas skin and a reddish color gilded at the end of the neck, very short stalk. Blackish eye. Thin and delicate skin that does not support the excessive handling as result the Catalan phrase "You / it are more delicate than a Figa Flor ( breva )".to refer to things or people who it is needed to manipulate with a lot of care.

Continued harvest achieving the end of summer.
