Grower: Kelly

Year: 2016, 2017

Accession: 136

Seed Source: Plant Gene Resources Canada (CN 7547)


2017 PGRC recorded the ripe fruit as green, but it is definitely a golden yellow. 35 gr perfectly round fruit with a sweet flavour. A little late for my season, but ripens off the vine well, kept well, and had very good production (delayed slightly due to cooler weather in the spring). Would like to grow again when we have an earlier spring to see how maturity is then. 2.2 lbs/plant.
2016 Crop failure.
