'Earliana' as a testament to its desirable attributes, is one of the oldest named commercial varieties still in wide circulation and use. It was introduced in 1900 by Johnson & Stokes of Philadelphia. The original stock was produced by George Sparks of Salem, New Jersey and is reported to have been selected from a single plant found in a field of 'Stone'.[1,2] Each packet contains approximately 20 seeds.
