Tatiana Kouchnareva (B.C KO T). Britain's Breakfast - sliced fruit. 2014-09-21.


Indet., vigorous plants with regular leaf foliage. Large multiflora flower trusses with a very good percentage of fruit set. 1.5-3 oz, small red oval fruits with a cute little nipple at the blossom end. Firmer flesh makes it suitable for farmers market or for children's lunchbox. Very good old-fashioned flavor. It makes a very good rich tasting sauce, and also perfect for pickling.
