(C. moschata) Introduced to America about 1862 by
James Hogg, of Yorkville, New York, from seeds his
brother Thomas sent him from Japan. We are so happy
to reintroduce this piece of American history. The
beautiful fruits are very flat, ribbed and dark-green-totan
in color. The golden flesh is dry and fine-grained.
Listed by both Burr (1863) and Vilmorin (1885). RARE!
