Year: 2015, 2016
Seed Source: Received from Melissa F. of Syracuse, NY, USA.
2016 The plant definitely did better for me this year than it did last year, which is crazy because none of my other plants did exceptionally well. Late to produce and ripen (heat probably delayed the ripening), but produced nice big, 300 gr fruit. Very meaty, very good flavour. Very pretty striking yellow and red striping. Would definitely like to grow again in a slightly cooler year to see how it goes. 2015 Plant grew extremely poorly and did not produce even one fruit. Heat seemed to be the real problem - really suffered as temperatures went up. Will grow in a shadier location. Will try again in 2016.
