An old heirloom variety from Virginia that won Grand Prize in 1907 for size and taste. Possibly from the Ponderosa strain around 1889. Big plants produce lots of 1-2 pound (and more), pink/purple, meaty fruits with a slightly thicker skin than most heirlooms. A wonderful low-acid tomato with abundance of sweet flavors. A great canning tomato.
