Dark purple productive Italian type, fruit is 20-25 x 6cm in diameter. 4 or more fruits per plant. Height 55-95cm.

A large bushy plant with attractive purple flowers. Has spiky stems. Wear gloves to harvest fruit as the spikes on the calyx are sharp enough to break one's skin.

Some varieties with slim, long fruit such as Asian Bride produce their fruit earlier. Mulch well and keep well watered. May need staking
