San Felipe is a favorite among Cubans, and it has many of the characteristics and benefits of Florida Haden. The tree is a fast grower that consistently produces colorful bright yellow fruit with an apple red blush overlaid by a blanket of white dots. The fruit weigh from fourteen ounces to just over one pound each and have a deep yellow to orange flesh which is rich, sweet, and spicy. As an early season producer its disease resistance is boosted, because they are harvested before the worst of the summer showers. The fruit typically ripen in June.
