Very attractive, medium-sized, elongated fruit are produced with a base colour of red with beautiful, wavy yellow-orange streaks. The meaty flesh and excellent but mild flavour, are an added bonus. Excellent sliced lengthways in salads. (Cordon)
Seeds are surface-sown or covered only slightly. Do not allow the soil to dry out. Containers are held in warm conditions until sprouts appear, which may take anywhere from 3-10 days. Move sprouting plantings immediately to bright light conditions, such as a south-facing window. Inadequate light is a frequent cause of failure of young seedlings. At about the time of last frost, set out seedlings into grow bags. Plants need staking and side-shoots removing.
