A 51 day cultivar, 21/2 - 3 inch pods, 30 inch vines. April 22. Mediocre production, well behind Dakota, Caselode, Strike etc which I have grown under the same conditions. It is early, filling less than a week after the overwintered Willet Wonder. Altho advertised with 30 inch vines, mine barely topped 16 inches, which may account for the less than expected yield. It also appears to a one and done plant, with all the pods filling at the same time. Just not suited for this Georgia climate. I would give it a grade of "C".
