From Known You Seed, which provides this information: "Plant is vigorous. Fruit is round-shaped, not easy to be aging, and has thick flesh, sweet and tender quality. It is 14 cm in length, 2 cm in diameter, weighing 16 g. Fruit-set begins on the 6th node when it is sown under high temperature (30C), but on the 3rd-4th node when it is sown under low temperature (15-20C). Can be harvested around 50-55 days after sowing.
