Pretty fruit, but tasteless. Didn't yield much until late. Probably not a good variety for Northern Wisconsin.

Grew this 3 years in a row. Healthy compact plants about 18-24" tall. Fruit 8-10oz. very early, very productive for such a small plant. Fruits tend to weigh the plant down. A mainstay in my plantings. Very dependable. Tastes great to me!

Grew this variety in a container a couple of seasons back. Average flavor at best.
