Soldacki,    Heirloom           

       (80 - 91 days)  The 8 ounce, dark pink fruit are produced on vigorous,  six foot potato-leaf like vines that tolerate disease better than the average non-hybrid.  To avoid concentric cracking, Soldacki fruit should be harvested when first ripe.   The firm, low acid, aromatic fruit have a nice mix of juice to meat.  The indeterminate vines grow tall and will need support.
     The variety was first brought to Cleveland OH from Krakow, Poland, in the early 1900's.  Carolyn Male was given seeds by a co-worker and introduced the variety to SSE in 1991.
