Note: your rating buttons do not record on a touch-screen telephone, but my experience was positive. I bred from my own seeds for two or three years, because Henry Fields no longer carries it, and despite being an F1, it bred true. It endured our Lake Hell summers and bore prolifically, but one cold winter's night, the weatherman lied, and I lost it all. Help!

From Known-You which describes as follows; " Plants are vigorous, average-early, can be harvested beginning 50-55 days after transplanting; relatively taller and spreading, and well-branched. Highly productive with globe-shaped fruits that are about 10 cm long, with 9.5 cm diameter, and 320 g weight."
