Four foot tall plants produce loads of long, skinny, pale green fruits into the fall. The flesh has a mild, delicate flavor, never bitter. This variety lacks the spines found on many others. It benefits from a short cage or stake.

The plant is extremely vigorous and has a beautiful, lush, tropical appearance. It is extremely productive. The flowers can range from white to lavender in color. The fruit has a pale apple green color and has a firm texture that holds up well on the grill or in oven roasting. The plant can start to sprawl a bit, and could use some support as it matures.
