Bonholm's Diamond, Swell Of Gold

Description

Its name and characteristics were derived from a Swedish variety called Bornholm bred on on island of the same name. This one is more tolerant of damp weather which makes it suitable for continental climate.

The fruit is large – approx. 6 cm long and 4-5 cm wide. The skin is green and turns light brownish red closer to maturity, the flesh is pink. Its taste is sweet and juicy though perhaps not as strong as on southern varieties. It ripens from mid-summer until end August (weather conditions pending). Immature fruit and branches contain sap which can be an eye and lip-irritant. Pick up the fruit only when it is easily detachable from the stalks. The shrub does not require pollination. Palmate leaves are very ornamental – mid green and large, with deep, rounded lobes.
