These are the BEST, they really earn the name Ace.

Medium size fruits, prolific, early, not finicky variety. Thick walled. Sweet. You can't go wrong planting these, especially in Northern climates.

They definitely need support - from as early as possible.

Very productive plant that begins bearing early and does not exceed 15" tall here. Adapts to drought but definitely produces thicker walled fruits with irrigation.
