Peak of Perfection

An old variety from Salzer Seed Co. of La Crosse, Wisconsin, sold by them in 1918 and perhaps earlier. Originally distributed to a select group of customers by the John A. Salzer Seed Company of La Crosse, Wisconsin starting in 1927 under the name, “Salzer’s New Wonder.” They officially introduced the variety in 1930. It was retrieved from the USDA seed collection by Craig LeHoullier of Raleigh, North Carolina in 1995. Indeterminate, regular leaf plant produces 6-8 oz., pink, smooth, globe-shaped fruits with very nice flavors.
