indet., regular leaf, relatively compact but vigorous and bushy plants, good yield of medium red oblate fruits, 4-6 oz. Bright crimson red flesh. Very good balanced and strong flavor. Excellent for canning because of its firm flesh, thick gel, perfect size, and no blemishes. Keeps very well a couple of weeks after picking ripe.

Patty Brown, Ohio 06 / Lyuda Battin, Texas / Ukraine

Year grown: 2011

Large vines need caging or staking, 70 days, medium sized (6-10 oz) round red fruit, average productivity and flavor for me. I suspect that this variety is capable of better results (larger fruit, better productivity) than I obtained from a crowded plant competing with other plants for water.
