And now I do remember it was Keith Mueller who picked it up at a Farmer's Market where more than one vendor was saying it was from here or there, and that was when Keith was doing his MS degree with Dr. Randy Gardner at NCSU in Fletcher, NC, which is just south of Asheville. And Keith has also said at several message sites in the past that it's just a general word that many folks use to describe a gold/red bicolor.
So there is no one variety that can be called Candy Stripe, really. My brother now lives in NC just above Asheville and his neighbor grows a bicolor and when I asked my brother what he called it he said it was a family heirloom and had no name. I didn't ask for seeds. ( smile)
