This is my second season for growing this variety, and I continue to be amazed at the production. The fruit is big, with many at 1 lb. or more, and the large vine is loaded with these lunkers. Last year, I'm guessing I harvested about 40 ripe fruit over a long season, and there were still at least 20 unripe ones when the first freeze hit.

Also, it is not french or American, but apparently Russian (Siberian). And so it in theory should do well when the weather cools down and is said to continue producing through out the entire season.

So far I'm massively impressed. The beautiful pink that develops is lovely to behold. I just harvested my first one and it came out to 14 oz's. This is definitely an early producer. Pictures have been posted. I'm growing three Pink Honey plants, and each one already has 15-20 very LARGE beefsteaks growing. Out of the 15 varieties I'm experimenting... read more
