From Johnny’s: “Superb flavor in an eye-catching fruit. Among the very best in eating quality – right up there with Sweet Dumpling for sweetness in early to mid fall. Jester is oval, tapered at both ends, with small to average ribs. Fruits have an ivory background with green striping between the ribs, and avg. 1 1/2 lb. Widely adapted, short-vined plants average 5-7 fruits/plant. Recommended storage time is about 60 days.”
Care: Plant 3-4′ apart in rows 6-8′ apart in full sun. Leave on the vine as long as possible, until rinds have hardened. Bring in after the first light frost, before rains.
