Bred by Fred J. Pritchard of the USDA as a stabilized cross between the now presumed extinct 'Marvel' and 'Ponderosa'. 'Marvelosa' was released in 1924.
Our stock was grown out from seed originally obtained from the USDA back in 2003 (GRIN accession number PI 452002.) We re-released it to the gardening public for the 2013 gardening season. Each packet contains approximately 20 seeds.
