Has existed as a named sort since 1894 and has not yet been surpassed as oven-baked. The fruit is cylindrical, 15 "“ 20 cm long, weighing about a pound. The colour is creamy with dark-green stripes changing to orange during storage. The plant has a compact way of growing with some small off shoots.

MOFGA-certified seed. See under Info etc. - Ecologically grown seeds.
