Sliced and ready to enjoy.
Bloom in morning sun ... the photo is not blurry, the petals have hairs. (San Antonio, Tx.)
Growing in a container on my patio
The first one harvested in 2005. It was firm and crunchy.
Before powdery mildew got it in our wet spring, it was very healthy. See all the fruit?
Planted from store-bought seedlings...about 3 weeks after planting.
Planted May 26, 2008. Began eating fresh July 18th. Excellent!
A fruit shortly before picking. I pick them at about 5 inches long, or 1.5 inches thick before the seeds get big.
