Introduced to America in 1992, this variety has been grown in Russia for many years.

The compact plants, with 3' to 5' vines lend them selveves to the dacha type garden that is famous around Moscow, as well as smaller gardens here in the US where space is of a premium.

Good production, 46-49 days.
