The name may not be poetically inspiring but the fruit certainly is.  Emerald green flesh is superbly sweet with a delightful aroma.  This variety is well worth pampering for your future enjoyment.  It is best grown with protection – one for the greenhouse.                         

Price for 4 seeds. 

SOW: in February or March, one seed per pot, water, cover with polythene and keep at about 18°C until germinated.  Uncover and grow on in a warm spot until they have 4 proper leaves.  Sow in April if you can keep them frost free in the autumn.

 

GROW:  pamper these with the warmth of the sun through glass - best planted in the greenhouse or polytunnel or in a grow bag in a conservatory.  They like a rich, moist & warm soil.  After mid-summer remove flowers & the smallest fruit to concentrate the growth into the larger ones

 

EAT:  pick when they turn from pale green to a creamy colour with a slightly gold hue.   It should part easily from the stem and the blossom end will be slightly soft.
