Field Trip is an appropriately named variety for anyone catering to school tours at their farm market. Field Trip produces 5 to 7 lb. fruit with deep orange color, moderate ribbing, and distinctive, long, well-rooted handles. The attractive, flattened fruit are the ideal size for children to carry from the field and then home from school. Semi-vining plants have intermediate resistance to Powdery Mildew.
