Ripening fruits may crack, if they get rained on. It's best to pick them at first color, or before a rain falls upon ripening fruits, and let them ripen off the vine. DTM: supposedly 60. Mine were fall started and fall finished in a Northern climate, so they had a slow start. The green stripes will turn gold, when it's fully ripe.

  • Tatiana's note: We do not support names translation, as it leads to confusion and the same variety being offered under different names. Please always use the original variety name to avoid confusion and preserve variety's roots and history. All the translated names are considered to be 'marketing' names, and not actual variety names.
