Grower: Kelly

Year: 2011, 2014

Accession: 46

Seed Source: Original seed obtained from Seedy Saturday, Nelson, BC (2009).

Comments:

2014 Very productive in the dryer, hot weather this year. Sweet and acidic full flavour, very meaty with little juice and few seeds. Great for fresh eating, as well as stewing down for preservation. Absolutely delicious, a favourite! A little late for the season here on the prairies, but ripens well off the vine, so if there's an early frost you can still harvest a ton. 12lbs per plant.
2011 Meaty, sweet fruit, excellent flavour and very productive, although production suffers in cooler, wet weather.
