I planted this late last year to chance an Indian Summer. Wow, it produced and kept going outdoors late into November. Greenhouse crops in the late tomato pots went on longer till first frost. Well worth it for later sowing in empty ground. Excellent crunch and taste for later cropping.


Glad to have found this cultivar
