Grower: Kelly

Year: 2017

Accession: 238

Seed Source: Seedy Saturday, Victoria, BC.


2017 Good flavour, similar in colouring and flavour to Green Zebra but oblong/pear shaped with a point at the blossom end. Far too late for my climate, although the cool temps in spring might have contributed to this. Interesting variety and great for fresh eating, but Green Zebra is more reliable and better in my area. 1.25 lbs/plant.
