Tatiana Kouchnareva (B.C KO T). Zolotoy Korol - sliced fruit. 2013-09-05.


Det. (or compact indet.) plants with wispy regular leaf foliage. Large golden yellow fruits shaped like perfect hearts, some with pink blush inside, 8-16 oz. Fruit trusses are so large and impressive, we found up to 6 very large fruits ripening on the same truss at the same time. Very good sweet flavor with a nice citric zing. Flesh is meaty but juicy, with small seed chambers.
