History

  • First introduced in Seed Savers 2007 Yearbook by Val and Dan McMurray of Wynndel, BC, Canada (B.C MC D), who received the original seed from Al Anderson of Troy, Ohio (OH AN A).
  • Al Anderson received seeds in the early 2000s, and named it 'Rhoades Heirloom', probably assuming it was another 'unnamed' heirloom variety. He was told this variety had been grown by one family for a number of years, and he now thinks that it may actually be a well-known bi-color variety (see [1]).
