(Large Sweet Spanish) 58 days. (green > scarlet red) [Introduced in 1759 from India. Pre-1900 this variety was often stuffed with cabbage and pickled.]
Early maturing. An unusual combination of sweet and heat: the thick flesh is sweet and the cell partitions or ribs are slightly pungent. In our trials we have noted that the heat can be very subtle or absent and may depend on growing conditions. 3 x 4 in. fruits are 4-lobed, borne on tall, prolific plants. Pkt.
