"Early, vigorous, indeterminate type, large leaves, short internode. Fruits are 240 grams, red, deep oblate, smooth with green shoulder, 6 to 7 loculi, 5 to 6 fruits per cluster. Firm meat, less cracking. Good for fresh market. Highly tolerant to Verticillium, Fusarium 1, 2, Stemphylium and Nematodes. Very strong tolerance to heat. I am growing this one this year, so I will rate it during the harvest. A Japanese hybrid from Takii. 8-5-06. Perform reasonably well.
