Tatiana Kouchnareva (B.C KO T). Demidov - sliced fruit. 2013-07-20.


Compact det. dwarf plants with rugose regular leaf. Fruits are pearly pink with beautiful green shoulders that disappear when fully ripe, medium size and variable shapes, round, from slightly oval to slightly oblate. 2-6 oz. It is always reliably early in our garden. Flavor is very good, balanced, with some sweetness. I love the smooth texture so much!
