Autumn Frost yields attractive, blocky round, tawny colored fruit with a dusting of natural waxy bloom. Growing to about 6 inches across and 4 pounds each, these deeply ridged beauties offer a thick layer of sweet flesh that stores well. vining plants produce 9‒10 fruit that start out green and ripen to their frosty finish.
