Southern Exposure Seed Exchange
8 in stock
65 days. (Indeterminate) [Introduced 1991 by SESE. Developed by the U. of Arkansas.] Adapted for growing on stakes for vine-ripe harvest in home gardens and for farmer’s markets. 5 ft. plants bear 7 oz flattened-globe fruits with few defects, and uniform-ripening shoulders. Developed from a complex pedigree involving ‘Bradley’, ‘Arkansas Traveler 76’, ‘Heinz 1439’, and ‘Campbell 1327’, the pink fruits have excellent eating quality and good shelf life. Unlike many other varieties, flavor is not greatly affected by early harvest in the post-breaker (pale pink) stage. Very productive all season. Recommended for hot, humid, disease-prone areas.
Packet: Seed size varies considerably; 0.16 g unless noted (about 40-83 seeds) sows 100 ft.
