A hybrid, here is the original page - https://www.takii.co.jp/CGI/tsk/shoh...=5&daigi_flg=0

Can't really find it anywhere for sale in Europe, and doesn't seem terribly popular in Japan, certainly nothing like senryo ni go (Moneymaker nr 2).

The chinese 'black dragon' types are probably better, with very thin skin, and very straight fruit (also very productive), if you can get your hands on them of course.

That shiromaru seems fairly different compared to Xi'an green, more fluted and flattened on one side, not like the shiromaru I saw in japanese youtube which was virtually identical to Xi'an green, this one seems more like Aomaru/ Ao daimaru.
