Donated by Elmer Burns, who has grown the variety since about 1979 when he received it from Clinton Mobley of Oneida, Kentucky. SSE believes this is an authentic example of the historic variety of the same name. Author M.L. Bowman (1915) wrote that it was developed by three Johnson County, Indiana farmers who combined their individual breeding projects in 1899. It became a popular, well-regarded variety grown by Midwestern farmers in the early 1900s.
