Tall, straight with wide, green, strong blades. Pale yellow keel and margins. Seldom sends up flower heads.
Good for ladies piupiu because of the long blades. With care, will strip fairly easily into long strips of white silky fibre. For kete it dries to a pale fawn when boiled for one minute. Fawn when unboiled.
|Muka extraction||Muka extracts exceptionally cleanly. Para removes effortlessly. Fibre white, smooth and silky. Medium amount of fibre. Excellent muka flax|
|Raranga - unboiled||Whenu soften easily. Edges fray and release muka strands. Typical muka flax reminding me of Makaweroa but with slightly less fibre.|
