Seed Source: Original seed from private donor.


2019 This plant did astonishingly well for me early in the season - it was the first to set flowers and fruit. Then the rain and cool weather came and it really floundered, which was too bad because it showed so much promise. The weather definitely caused a bunch of blossom drop and delayed ripening. I definitely want to try it again in a better year.
