Absolute perfect balance in the taste. Rugose leafed, tree-like, and about 4 feet tall. Slightly oblate fruits are pink and averaged about 3 1/2 ozs. 69 days. This one was grown in a 3 gallon black nursery pot, but I recommend at least a 5 gallon container.

"We make a specialty of this very distinct variety, and have grown a number of acres every year since its introduction. A single plant of it was first found some twelve years ago in a field of Livingston's Acme. Its dwarf, compact and upright growth enables it to be planted two or three feet apart each way. Heavy manuring, instead of producing a superabundant growth of vine (as in many varieties), increases the yield and size of the fruit. In form and color they resemble Acme - smooth and symmetrical in shape, ripening close around the stem. Matures the fruit early, is very productive, medium large, and crowded close together on the branches; foliage an unusually dark green."
