Year: 2009, 2015

Accession: 70

Seed Source: Seed bank stock. Original seed from Julianna G., Toronto, ON.


2015 Excellent production this year, did well in the heat and low moisture. Very reliable producer of excellent flavoured fruit. Keeps producing right up until frost. Almost no blossom drop or fruit set problems despite less than optimal growing conditions. Approx 10 lb/plant.
2009 Lemon yellow 8-10oz fruit, kind of looks like a really heavily pleated yellow pepper. Very pretty variety, very good taste, especially for a yellow. Sweet, but with a nice little kick of acidity. Thrived in really hot weather, really good production. Definitely not hollow despite its shape, quite juicy. No cracking or splits. (Observations from Nelson, BC).
