This very rare, ancient seed originates in southern Texas, although we do feel it dates back much earlier to Mexico. Thrives in our coastal conditions, in the greenhouse and would do well in hot locations as well. Perfect oval shape, average size to 3 inches long, with a deep red colour and meaty moist texture. Delicious prepared fresh and for sauce. Be sure to give very good support for abundant full-season production. Shows excellent disease resistance. This is an excellent storage variety, will keep for weeks indoors once picked. The green fruit also ripens very well. Ready in 80 days.
