24-32”H plants produce stunning oval-round 5-6”L x 5-7” diameter light pink-lavender, lightly ribbed fruits with creamy white shading topped by a showy green calyx. Meaty flesh is deliciously mild with no bitterness. Best suited to regions with warm nights. Perfect for grilling, frying, stuffing and baking. Excellent for Fresh and Heirloom Markets and Home Gardens.
Pollination occurs by insect, bird, wind, humans, or other natural mechanisms. Because there are no restrictions on the flow of pollen between individuals, open-pollinated plants are more genetically diverse. However, as long as pollen is not shared between different varieties within the same species, then the seed produced will remain true-to-type year after year.
This variety has a history of being passed down within a family or community, similar to the generational sharing of certain items like jewelry or furniture.
