2019 This one was a really pleasant surprise. Like all of my other varieties this year it was hampered by cool, wet weather later in the season, but I still got a moderate harvest. Nice, buttery soft flesh, and a nice sweet/tart flavour. I look forward to growing this one again with fresh seed. Large vines need good staking - mine were easily over 5 ft.
