85 days, indet, regular leaf, droopy foliage, moderate yield of lovely 12-24 oz. scarlet red oxhearts with outstanding flavor. From Big Red in KY, who got the seeds from a elderly neighbor (Linnie Sears). She's been growing this variety for years, and originally obtained her seeds from one of her friends.
