Shiny Boy certainly deserves winning the prestigious All America Selections award. It caught our eye in our test plots because of its exceptional yield potential, outstanding flesh color, and outstanding flavor and sweetness. Its oblong-shaped fruit have an attractive green rind with dark green stripes. Shiny Boy's 15 to 17 lb. fruit are produced on vigorous vines that hold up well to variable weather conditions and produce good, early yields in just 75 days from transplant. When you cut the fruit open you is amazed at its deep red flesh color, and when you bite into a slice you'll want to savor its crisp, sweet flesh.
