55 days. [U. of Arkansas, 1991.] Popular and reliable, this white-spined pickler has multiple disease-resistance. Compact vines have multiple branch points and will climb a fence or trellis with ease. Small leaf size makes finding fruit easier, and the parthenocarpic flowers produce fruit under stress and without pollinators. Medium-sized, blocky fruits good for slicing and pickling. Downy mildew resistant in years past, these fared poorly in 2013Â’s cold, wet summer. This variety may have lost downy mildew resistance with the development of new strains of the fungus.
