Tatiana Kouchnareva (B.C KO T). Sonica - ripe fruit. 2013-08-22.


Compact plants with regular leaf foliage, quite early maturing small flattened mini-beefsteaks. Fruits are light pinkish-red when fully ripe. Excellent balanced flavor, both sweet and acidic, I really liked it. It is a good keeper, and can stay on the counter for several weeks after picking. 0.75-2 oz. Fruits do not have many seeds. (15 seeds / packet)
