This improved sister cultivar of Empire No.2 has better quality and more stability. The plants are moderately vigorous. This large oblong fruit weighs 12-17kg and has a light green rind with netted stripes. The flesh is vivid red, very sweet with about 12% sugar content, crisp, tender, and less prone to hollow heart. The brown seeds are medium to small sized. This hard and tough fruit is not only good for storage and shipping, but it is also very tasty.
Please take precautions that some plants might occasionally bear fruit with darker green rinds, hollow heart, or limp flesh due to the hereditary genes, unfavorable climatic conditions (low temperatures in particular) or resulting from some different cultural practices.
