This is the best bi-colour I have grown so far. It ranked 1st= (next to Aussie) in my garden this year, out of the 65 varieties I grew, of which 8 were bi-colour.
Fruit was HUGE and very very abundant. I only had two plants of this variety and was overloaded with fruit. Beautiful colourations and very good taste for a bi-colour. Mild and sweet, but not bland. They had a distinct fruity taste, almost like melon or pear.
This variety was not affected by diseases, when many other plants in my garden were. Will definately grow again.
