Gardeners' Notes:

Positive DonShirer On Aug 8, 2012, DonShirer from Westbrook, CT (Zone 6a) wrote:

I tend to agree with Tatiana's comments, but would say "good" not "superb" taste. My plants barely reached 5 ft. tall.

Neutral Online_Lux On Oct 20, 2011, Online_Lux from Saint Joseph, MI (Zone 6a) wrote:

"Silvery green with red striping bicolored fruit. 3-5 ounces with deep chocolate/maroon flesh. Superbly balanced complex taste. Medium heavy producer on 5-7 foot indeterminate regular leaf vines. 69 days."
