Seed Source: From commercial seed source.


2018 Really nice, tart flavour, and perfect for snacking or in salads. Really good fruit set, and resisted extreme temperature fluctuations very well over the summer. Very tiny fruit, so while the weight wasn't much, I literally got hundreds of fruit. Definitely a sprawling vine, so needs caging or really good support (and lots of room!). About 1.5 lbs/plant.
