- Seeds originally came from Patty Brown of Ohio. Patty's mother, who lives in West Virginia, bought a plant at an Amish nursery at Hidden Valley, Marsdale, PA, and Patty saved seeds from the fruits. Patty called it 'Sweet Meat' and shared the seeds with her gardening friends via Tomatoville and Garden Web in the early 2000s. 'West Virginia' was added to the name later to indicate the origin.
- First introduced to SSE by Neil Lockhart of Oblong, Illinois in the 2008 Yearbook.
