Plants growing well. Considerable suckering at leaf bases. I have buds, but no flowers yet June 25, Late planting out because of wet soil.

A 7 x 2 inch white cultivar from Petoseed. It is very similar to Dourga. Grows well here and is productive. Flavor is not as good as the Japanese types like Ichiban. I consider it more a novelty than a main garden cultivar.
