The author of this variety considered it to be stable as early as in 2016. However, in very rare cases there may be certain variations due to weather conditions (such as major changes in day and night temperatures). The color or weight of the fruits may change a little. Such interesting variations are usually observed in one of hundred cases. You can preserve these variations by collecting the seeds and stabilizing the variety. If you observe any unusual changes you are welcome to take a photo of such fruits and inform us about them.
