History

  • Breeder: Keith Mueller of Kansas City, Missouri.
  • Parentage: A pink-purple line derived from the Brandywine X Cherokee Purple cross.
  • Named for Keith Mueller's paternal grandmother. Her name by her account (when Keith sat down with her in 1999 and recorded family information for his own record) was spelled Gary'O not O'Sena. This is also the way her surviving children remember it being spelled. Her father, who was Irish, named her and there was a story behind it but neither Keith, nor do surviving family members, recall the story. A few records from the area list "Sena G." or "Garrie O'Sena" but these are incorrect.
  • Introduced to SSE in 2007 by Susan Anderson, TX (TX AN S) and Robbins Hail (MO HA R2), and quickly gained popularity among SSE members and Tomatoville members.
  • First introduced commercially by Sand Hill Preservation Center in 2009.
