A predominantly gynoecious hybrid slicer from Petoseed (Seminis). An early (60 day) cultivar with 8-12" long, blocky cylindrical dark green fruit. It has resistance to powdery mildew, cucumber mosaic virus, angular leaf spot, scab, zucchini yellow mosaic virus, papaya ringspot virus, watermelon mosaic virus 2, and anthracnose. Vigorous plant, very productive, excellent slicer.
