I am currently growing this plant, which I obtained from Gurney's. They list it as a new disease-resistant hybrid for 2011. In their files, it is INDETERMINATE and EARLY (60 days). It is growing well so far!

Interesting zebra markings on this fruit make it a fun one to grow, but it wasn't tasty enough for me. The skin was thick and the flavor fairly mild. I liked the determinate nature which is good if you have a short or cooler season. Moderately prolific.
