Owner's comments

dependable heavy bearer, resistant to most pests with little help on our end. Medium size fruit, sometimes unequal sides, small calyx. Sweet, juicy breaking flesh, fine grained. Predominately bright red flesh with some green and occasional russeting but usually not much. Can grow as many as four in one bunch in a good year. Sets fruit very well.
