I bought seeds last year from Baker Creek, based on their enthusiastic description.
Their description: very sweet and super productive. The name means "champagne candy' and the 18 - 24 inch, 6 - 9 pound pink fruits are certainly sweet, not to say intoxicating, with subtle overtones of vanilla! A very rare and exciting variety from Russia, but apparently of French origin.
I had no germination last year, or this year. I always start plants in the greenhouse and then transplant them to the garden, so it is very obvious when seeds don't grow - I can't blame weather, crows, coons etc which I could do if I sowed directly into the garden.
Has anyone had success?
