History

  • An old Virginia variety, which won Grand Prize for size and quality at the Jamestown Exposition held in 1907 at Sewell's Point, Virginia, now the site of the Norfolk Naval Base.
  • Seed was obtained from the Exposition and introduced commercially by Wood and Sons of Richmond, Virginia, and later carried in their catalog for about 60 years. Possibly derived from Ponderosa, 1889.
