The plant is determinate (with limited growth), 70-100 cm high. Fruits are flat-round, bright orange, with an average weight of 250-300 g (individual up to 500 g). The pulp is tender, with a pleasant sweetish taste, contains a lot of carotene. The fruits are perfect for making fresh summer salads, juices and tomato sauces.
In combination with the varieties "Siberian Giant" and "Raspberry Elephant", very bright and tasty vegetable cuts are obtained. The variety is distinguished by long-term fruiting. Sowing seedlings - in late March - early April. Pick - in the phase of the first true leaf. Landing in the ground - in late May-early June. Garter, regular feeding, harvesting of fruits in blanche ripeness with subsequent ripening increases the yield.
