Lillian’s Red Kansas Paste

This variety was grown by Lillian Bruce, Tennessee, which explains why it was named ‘Lillian’s’. First offered in the Seed Savers 1989 Yearbook by Robert Richardson of Phelps, NY, who got the seeds from somebody in Kansas. Indeterminate, regular leaf plants with wispy appearance produce small, 1-3 oz., red, oval fruits with excellent sweet flavors.
