Seemed to be a very fussy producer here in southern New Hampshire (zone 5b) but now that we are into the late season (Sept) it's now producing very nice fruit.

A 70 day hybrid with lavender and white variegated fruits. Green calyx fruits run to 8 inches long by 4 inches in diameter. It is both early and prolific under my growing conditions. Very attractive striped fruit. Taste and texture similar to Rosa Bianca. Not as sweet as the slender Asian types like Ichiban.
