Shiny Boy caught our eye in our test plots because of its exceptional yield potential, outstanding flesh color, and excellent flavor and sweetness. Its oblong-shaped fruit have a attractive green rind with dark green stripes. The 15 to 17 lb. fruit are produced on vigorous vines that hold up well to variable weather conditions and produce good, early yields. When you cut the fruit open you'll be amazed at its deep red colored flesh, crisp texture and wonderful flavor and sweetness. Shiny Boy is best for local roadside and farmers' market sales. Due to its thin rind thickness, it is not recommended for shipping.
