    This crack-resistant, open-pollinated variety produces 1- to 1 1/2-inch-diameter fruits in small clusters of 6 to 12 fruits per cluster.

    Testers said the vines were vigorous and high-yielding, but the fruits were the most susceptible to cracking of all varieties tested and the flavor was bland.
