A high yielding dwarf variety, `Pinkerton' is the ideal choice for small backyards. Elongated fruit, thick green skin darkening to almost black on ripening. The bright lime-green flesh within is rich in oils, surrounding a tiny seed, and has a unique `earthy' flavour. One of the most cold- tolerant varieties, producing huge yields of fruit on a compact canopy, there's room for a `Pinkerton' in every backyard.
