Made for hot climates but happy in any setting, Produces deep red fruits that weigh about 7 to 8 ounces, and arise by the many dozen on extra-vigorous plants. Expect the vines to reach 5 feet or so, just studded with fruit. MoneyMaker's flavor is a full, meaty, sweet bite.

This is a popular variety in English greenhouses.I obtain seeds from relatives over there and start them off on a sunny windowsill.I have never had a failure with them,there taste is delicious,something like the Tiny Tim taste but on a medium sized fruit.The inside is mostly juice with very little pulp.I love them,so tasty,I am growing them in Ontario Canada,we get hot humid summers,another favourite I grow along side is the Lemon Boy VFN,another tasty fruit.
