Tatiana Kouchnareva (B.C KO T). Gigant Pelina - fruit cluster. 2007-09-09.


80 days, indet., regular leaf plant with good yield of flattened red small beefsteak fruit, 2-5 oz; some fruits may be quite ribbed, others are smooth, excellent sharp sweet flavor, juicy flesh, keeps very well after picking - the fruits dry up rather than rot; I expected larger fruit since ‘Gigant’ means ‘Giant’ in English.
