2015 Nice, tasty fruit - sweet and mild with soft flesh and a hint of acidity. Despite having "early" in the name, it was not early for me, being one of the last varieties to ripen for me this year. Ripens well off the vine in a cool location and keeps for a relatively long amount of time. Might do better in a longer season. Approx 3 lb/plant.
