Fragrant, incredibly delicious flesh that keeps getting rave reviews from our customers and is a favorite of our staff. This historic heirloom was grown by Thomas Jefferson in 1794. It was offered commercially in the U.S. in 1824, and it was illustrated in color in France in 1854 in the Vilmorin Album. This wonderful variety has become very rare. The fruit has netted skin and light green flesh that is firm, sweet, and highly perfumed. Productive plants can be trained up a trellis..
