Seed Savers - The Lenape Indians introduced this variety to the English Colonists sometime in the 1700's while many seed catalogs started listing it in in the 1800's. The warted appearance of its bright yellow summer skin makes for an unusual looking fruit but its sweet and mild flavor will become a quick favorite of your family.
