Poor yield and low germination. Fruit were tough and tasted nasty, and they also really didn't keep all that much longer than open pollinated (heirloom) varieties did.

A big hybrid that has a similar appearance to Black Beauty . I don\'t like the taste of this type as well as I do the oriental types, but it is a producer of big market type fruits.
