Just an amazing GWR (Green When Ripe) with blue (anthocyanin) shoulders which drip down the sides of the 1/2 to 3/4 lb heart-shaped fruits. Tangy, zippy, sweet and balanced flavor is complex and really, really above par.
Tall vines are leggy and the leaves are wispy, which makes you wonder how they can produce such large fruits and so many of them. Caging, verus staking is recommended but I have also allowed the vines to sprawl with really good success, as well.
HISTORY: An intentional cross made my Russ Aceto (NH, USA) of Xanadu Picasso x RHK ( Reinhart Kraft) GWR Heart. I was sent the original cross from Russ as a grow-out along with several others. There are some really amazing lines that came out of this cross, but I have chosen to work with this one since 2018.
Sold in a 3.5" pot.
