A very productive early maturing F1 hybrid producing cylindrical, very straight fruits, slightly ribby, dark and glossy with a short neck and around 34-40cm long with good shelf life.  Vigorous growth habit and high resistance to powdery mildew. This is a glasshouse variety and needs good warmth to get the best results.

 

·         Sow Feb – Apr at a minimum temperature of 21C for germination.

·         Sow seed edgewise at 1cm deep in individual pots (temperature during germination is crucial).

·         It is better to sow later if you cannot maintain the minimum temperature early in spring.

·         Plant to the growing position when 10cm tall, avoiding disturbing the roots.

·         Male flowers can appear if the plants are stressed which should be removed.

·         Tie the plants to supports as they climb.

·         The variety crops after 10-12 weeks at the correct temperature.
