- Pale Perfect Purple x Purple Price cross.
- Tad Smith crossed Pale Perfect Purple with Purple Price and sent seeds to Carolyn Male, and she sent seeds to Craig LeHoullier in 1994. Craig grew them out and saved seeds (vial 94-64 - this is F2 seed).
- Denise Salmon, BC received the F2 seed from Craig, grew it in 2006 and selected the best line in the segregation ("C"). Denise described it as:
- "Likely not stable but delicious; really nice texture and complex, deep, sweet/tart flavour; meaty and juicy, outstanding flavor."
- Craig LeHoullier's description of F1:
- "What Tad [Smith] succeeded in creating was the same uniform purple color - no dark shoulders - of Pale Perfect Purple, but with the size of Price's Purple, on a PL plant. I grew out a few of the F2s in 1996 - don't have detailed notes handy. Hy. Fruit; Ind., potato leaf, large oblate smooth dusky pink/purple, good."
