"Very strong vigorous plant with excellent yield. Characterized by its extended harvesting period. Fruits are 12-15 cm and very uniform with a very distinctive greenish white to dark grayish green color and distinctive speckles. Fruits are uniformly tapered at stem end and uniformly wider at blossom end."
