Remarks
70 days to maturity. An extremely unusual, German Heirloom variety which may have been grown in this country by the Pennsylvania Dutch as early as 1855. The name, which literally translates as "giant bunch of grapes", aptly describes its astoundingnumber of flowers per cluster - as many as 350! These transform into bunches of red friuts weighing about 3/4 oz each, with a distinctive pear shape and sharp pointed end. Excellent, full-bodied flavor similar to a beefsteak, packed into fruits barely 1 1/2 inches across. Compact vines, strongly branched, with good foliage cover. Indeterminate.
