Details

This popular old French heirloom was developed by the Vilmorin Seed Co. It produces dependable, heavy clusters of 3-8 oz. deep red, slightly flattened, oblate fruits that are meaty, lightly lobed and contain an excellent, complex, slightly tart taste. This old-time favorite is common throughout much of Europe, and produces even in cool weather. Great for slicing!
