Tatiana Kouchnareva (B.C KO T). Zagadka - sliced fruit. 2014-08-21.


Very early. Bushy det. plants with regular leaf foliage can grow up to 3' tall. 2-4 oz red round fruit with dense meaty flesh. Keeps well after picking. Excellent for canning. Very productive. Very good balanced taste. This variety is great for farmers market, as it produces lots of blemish free fruit early in the season and fruits stay firm for several days after picking.
