This is the name I am attaching to some F-3 seed of the cross of Grushovka X (Green Zebra x F-1 Sun Gold).

The fruit is striking...1 1/2 inches wide and 4 1/2 inches long. Pink and yellow stripes in a vivid zig-zag pattern. It has red flesh and not a bad flavor at all. Productive and early. I forgot to write down the plant habit. I debated about what to name this clone. Grushovka was my launching name. Grushov, Grusha, and then I found out that Grusha is a nickname for Agrafena.

GRUSHA Gender: Feminine
Usage: Russian
Other Scripts: Груша (Russian)
Diminutive of AGRAFENA

Tatiana's note: 'Grusha' also means 'pear' in Russian.

{F-1 of (Bryan Grape x Green Sleeves) x Verde Rallado} X {F-1 of (Black Plum x Casady's Folly) x Black Prince}

The F-1 of the above F-1's in this rather complicated cross resulted in a pretty red grape/roma with yellow stripes. The stripes come from Verde Rallado which is for all practical purposes..a Green Zebra.......and Green Sleeves and Casady's Folly. A black stripe Roma or longer will likely show up in some of the F-2 seedlings.

I am posting this September 21, 2010...sorry I have not been editing my listing lately.
