A French variety like Lara and similarly to be seen grown in cordons in France, Soleze does not appear to share Lara's susceptibility to blight, but nor does it fare particularly well in the UK climate. It is protandrous, bears large nuts of good flavour and is partly self-fertile. Although slow-growing it makes a large tree at maturity.
