Recuperated by Ron Crowley from 9 seeds in poor season 2006 – cold, snow, hail, & frosts damaged plants, so not very big fruit and seed was normal to small. Ron says the name Giant Turks Cap is now fitting again, after the 2007-2008 year’s crop produced 11.9kg and 13.5kg fruits! Good flavour. “Turk’s Cap – A very early sort for districts where the seasons are short. They are good croppers and keepers, dry and good flavoured. Very little of this variety are now grown…” (1958 Yates Garden Guide). From Karlene Herdman, Rapahoe, West Coast, 2008.
