2022 Did pretty well for me this year, although did suffer a bit because it was slightly crowded, and I didn't trim as much as I really should have. A little later than Nicholaevna Pink, but produced about double. A lesson learned in making sure this one has room because it really likes to stretch its feet out. Approx 4.5kg (9lb 14 oz) per plant.
2018 Did not do as well for me this year, I suspect it was the high day temperatures with no cooling off at night. Still a favourite, will still grow again, and still a fantastic variety. I got about 8 lb/plant.
2014 Really lovely sweet, tangy flavour. Nice rich flesh, very meaty but with good amount of juice as well. Plants grow extremely well (and wild), requires good staking. Excellent quality large fruit with good production. One of my favourites of all time. 14lb per plant.
