80-85 days, indet., regular leaf, 8-14 oz, very good to excellent flavor, moderate productivity. Sometimes lumpy irregular shapes and ruffling, hence the name.

"Collected by Austin Isaacs from an old lady in Corbin, KY, about 13 years ago, who said they dated back to the early 1900's and her grandmother in Clay City, KY". Seeds were provided to me by life member of the Appalachian Heirloom Seed Conservancy, Brook Elliot.

Excellent balance of sugar and acid, good old-fashioned tomato taste. This is my first year raising this one but it won't be my last!
