Bred by University of Arkansas, Fayetteville as a stabilized cross between 'Rutgers' and 'Pan America'. It was released to seedsmen in 1954 by Libby, McNeill, and Libby (the food product company).
Although it was said to be adapted for "the Southern United Stated and Indiana," it proved to be a good performer here on the farm in Oregon. Our seed was grown out from USDA GRIN accession number NSL 22401 (PI 644844). Each packet contains approximately 20 seeds.
