DWARF BERYL BEAUTY
Sweet, green-when-ripe fruits are smooth and round, ranging from three to five ounces, and barely change color upon ripening, although a pale pink blossom end blush develops on some of the fruit. The flavour of this mid-season variety is balanced, full and delicious. It originated from a cross between 'Golden Dwarf Champion', a medium fruited yellow dwarf, with 'Green Giant', made in 2006 by Patrina Nuske Small in Australia and was named after the gemstone Beryl, which exhibits colouring similar to the fruit. Now past its ninth generation, it is a quite stable open-pollinated variety although it still rarely produces the occasional off-type plant.
Seeds are surface-sown or covered only slightly. Do not allow the soil to dry out. Containers are held in warm conditions until sprouts appear, which may take anywhere from 3-10 days. Move sprouting plantings immediately to bright light conditions, such as a south-facing window. Inadequate light is a frequent cause of failure of young seedlings. At about the time of last frost, set out seedlings into grow bags. Plants need staking but there is no need to remove the side shoots.
