History * A family heirloom from the small communi * A family heirloom from the small community of Dog Creek near Munfordville, Kentucky. * Collected by Randy Sine of West Virginia. This is a story that Randy shared: * ''"Members of the Winchester Avenue Church in Martinsburg, WV did charity work in depressed rural Appalachian communities. They did renovations of churches and barns and basically helped out in whatever way they could. At one of the communities in the Purple Dog Creek region of Kentucky near Munfordville a picnic dinner was given as a "thank you". Mr. Bill Hoffman as if he could take of couple of the tomatoes with him for his friend. Bill brought the tomatoes back to Martinsburg and gave them to my friend Spud Raney. Spud ate one to taste it and saved seeds from the other. Spud then called me and said I've got a good one, you might want to come get seeds. I traded with people and listed it in the SSE and Spud sells through the WV Market Bulletin. Between us we got the tomato into circulation." '' * Introduced to SSE in 2008 by four members.
