Variety description

A variety with vigorous, uniform growth and bountiful leaves, mid to early season growth. Needs warmth, recommended for growing under glass or plastic. Attractive, somewhat crinkly pods, 50-60 cm in length and weighing about 20 g. Their pale green colour is clearly distinguishable from the leaves and makes them easy to harvest. Ready to pick after 70 days. About 4 to 8 weeks harvest window. Recommendation is to pick every two days. A harmonious slightly acidic taste reminiscent of potatoes. The pods can be eaten raw, the leaves (without stalk) can be eaten too. Suitable for stir-fried dishes.
