Fabulous, unique taste. Sweet, but definitely not bland. Elongated heart/paste, with nipple on bottom, sometimes other shapes, medium to largish fruit. Indet habit, regular leaf foliage somewhat on the wispy side.

From Tom Gallucci of CT, originally from his ex-wife's grandfather, Mr. Prue was from MA but no one knows where this var. came from, Mr. Prue was born around 1900 and was known to be growing these in the 1940s and probably earlier.
