Rob's Cool Fruit

Average Rating 4.9 out of 5

even for dummies

This is the most fool-proof violet of any type that I have ever grown! I mostly have larger varieties and this was in a group of smaller violets that I ordered just to "try out". Boy have I been surprised at Cool Fruit. It is always in bloom, but I would happily grow it for the leaves alone. The variegation is breathtaking, but the perfect symmetry just happens with no effort at all. This violet easily gets my highest rating. If you are going to try a smaller variety, please put this one on your list!

My Favorite!

This is a fantastic little plant! I'm usually not a fan of pink, but this is my favorite african violet. The variegation on the foliage is striking and combined with the ethereal blossoms is just lovely. It never stops blooming and grows in a perfect rosette. Even when I make mistakes that might kill a lesser plant, it bounces back quickly and still looks like it's ready for show.
