  • A natural cross that appeared in the garden of Jeff Dawson of Napa, California in 1990. First offered in the SSE 2003 Yearbook by Jeff Dawson, and the seed seemed to be unstable, as other SSE members later listed various striped segregations.
  • --Tatiana (talk) 16:18, 3 July 2012 (PDT): I also observed some instability in the seeds from PA PI N2 and WI MI B.
  • Trialed and first offered commercially by TomatoFest .
