Actually they are different on each plant. But my mistake, it is only at F4. I am very curious (and ignorant!) about the wierd shape genetics of pointy-ness. I do get that length and fullness (heartiness vs plumminess) are additive so you may get anything on the scale.

I would say what you have there is an ideal heart shape. Just the right fullness and pointyness.

The others are coming along too. will post pics aplenty once I have some ripe ones to show. These are the earliest among my PL hearts, same as last year.

I was very much taken by the photos of them while they were still green - and now these!!!!

All my favourite attributes - PL, large, smooth, hearts, solid flesh, good taste...

Kudos to you, Karen; your dedication, hard work and patience have paid off in spades.
