ALTAECHKA is an mid-early to midseason, large, pink plum, or an elongated heart. (70-90 high) plant with a good yield of red-pinkish, round to oblate 150-300 g fruits, very good taste.
Only ONE of my 4 plants grown, had 3 different fruit shapes on the same plant. All fruits on the other 3 plants was all plum sized and shaped. I saved the 3 fruit shape types separately. I will do another grow out to see if the separated seeds keep to their parent fruit's size and shape.
