Results from My Garden:

  • 2009: Notes: good production; loved the color and texture – almost translucent and slightly peach-colored; much smaller than expected, but good flavor
  • 2011: flourished early-on, but wilted in July, then again in September (probably Verticillium), then died in October
  • 2012: took off earlier than the other plants and grew massive; mid- to late-July it started wilting; was mostly dead by August
  • 2014: grafting was definitely a success with this cultivar. Used Supernatural rootstock from Territorial Seed Co.
