Review:

I started these a little late perhaps, end of April, and neglected them. They were the smallest seedlings of all the varieties I grew, but they caught up nicely. I have two in a 10 gallon grow bag and they are monsters which have needed numerous stakes and ties and still they are out of control. Next year I will do one per bag if I grow these again. I used a super fortified all organic soil mix with plenty of rock dusts, kelp, fish meal, fish bone meal, fresh earthworm castings, etc and composts. Have top dressed once with kelp and EWC and given a couple of liquid fish feedings. So far these have been perfectly healthy with zero problems. Fruit set is very good but not enormous and I have been getting a couple per day ripening for the past week or so. They are sweeter than the Pink Bumblebees, don't have quite the acidic finish but overall they are quite tasty. The skin is not as tough as the Pink Bumblebees either. Inside and out they are stunning.

Would you recommend this product to a friend? Yes
