Indet, early to midseason plant with a good yield of yellow, globe 80-100 g fruits. From Belarusian CV Minsksortsemovoshch.

Plant got about 4 ft tall for me. Very productive and fairly early compared to other varieties. It was one of my first non cherry types to ripen. Flavor is average, but good for an early.
