75-80 days. Rather early type as you might expect from this variety that we received from the former Soviet Union. The very pretty fruits are oval to nearly round, run to 5 inches across, although most are more like 3 inches. Color is purple with white markings. The flavor is very mild. Productive plants are good-sized, to about three feet, and nearly free of spines. This seed was grown out by our own Sasha Gettle in conjunction with her grandfather!
