  • A University of Missouri variety used in producing several hybrids once popular in Arkansas and Missouri, including Avalanche (Mozark x Glamour) and Missouri Surprise, also known as MoCross Surprise (Mozark x Sioux). Then Mozark went out of production and the hybrids were taken off the market.
  • Bill Jeffers of Indiana got some 1964 seeds from Dr. David Trinklein (Univ. Mo. at Columbia) and grew some nice, 36 – 40" tall plants that bore an average 40 fruit in the 5 – 7 ounce range, red, slightly flattened globes with excellent tart flavor that used to be common among canner types.
