Comments:

2015 Good production, last grown in Nelson, BC which had high humidity and heat, here in Edmonton in high heat and low humidity the plant really flourished quite a bit better. Approx 5.5lbs per plant.
2009 Moderate production, only about 2lb per plant. Seemed to suffer from the heat quite a bit. Good sized fruit, oblate (very non-uniform) about 3-4" across. Excellent flavour, slightly fruity and with low acidity.
