Found in the Wairarapa from a strain of Crown, but has been crossed at some point and sometimes displays non-Crown characteristics. Each season we are selecting for the true 'Crown' traits to bring it back to its pure form. Always has tasty orange flesh, and keeps well.
Sow into trays in September/October. Prick out to 4cm diagonal spacing when true leaves appear. Transplant into fertile soil at 50cm diagonal spacing when chance of frost has passed.
