Indeterminate, regular leaf plants produce 12-16 oz., very large, creamy-yellow fruits with pinkish blush at the blossom end. Fruits are irregularly shaped, not really hearts, more like beefsteaks. Very juicy, with excellent balanced flavor that gets sweeter at the peak of the season. Since the fruits are rather pale and have clear skin.
