Family heirloom given to Anna Swartz by a friend in the 1950s. Anna loved this variety because of its extremely hard shell and excellent storage ability. High quality flesh is the color of sweet potatoes and has a similar flavor. One of our all-time favorites. Extremely hard-skinned fruits weigh 5-8 pounds. 90-100 days.
