When Decana is ready for harvesting its skin has a pale green background color turning yellow-green when the fruit is perfectly ripe. There can be some slightly russeting parts on the skin and blush of pink on the skin directly exposed to the sun. Flesh is really special, aromatic and melting when fruits are ripe.
