70 days. This totally unique variety is amazing! Smooth, fruit starts off green with dark green stripes and striking indigo-colored splashes. Fruit ripens to spangled brick-red with green stripes, complemented by lots of black anthocyanins, giving this a very striking multi-colored finish. Very good, sweet rich and juicy flavor. Great ability to hang on the vine ripe and stay edible better than most. Good post-harvest shelf life, maintaining superb eating quality for weeks. Very productive, too. This release from Brad Gates is a triumph!2-3 oz. fruit, Very unique variety.
