First offered by T. W. Woods & Sons of Richmond, Virginia in 1899. Fruits are smaller than standard bush scallops, tend to be thicker and less scalloped. Fruits borne in great profusion and will produce up until frost, if plants are continuously picked. 50 days.

I don't remember this one sufficiently to differentiate between it and the stand white bush scallop. However T.W. Wood strains were favorites when I was kid always seemed to have an edge over the standards. Really missed them when they went out of business.
