Very tall, wide, medium green blades. Few kōrari.
Handy all purpose harakeke. Strips fairly well, although para is inclined to adhere. In tests for piupiu making, dried quite hard but strip needs to be cut to about 25 mm. Not as strong as other cultivars. Dries to a pale fawn.
|Muka extraction||Muka extracts perfectly cleanly and easily. Para removes effortlessly. Ideal muka flax.|
|Raranga - unboiled||Strong flax, but like other muka flax the edges fray and fibre wants to separate from leaf when being softened.|
