"Ripens as early as the Acme; of smooth form, free from rot, keeps and carries well. In color, a rich glossy crimson with a slight tinge of purple (lighter than the Acme). It is valuable for market from its solidity, toughness of skin and from the fact that it will ripen up well when picked green."
"A decided favorite for either home market or shipping purposes, being early, hardy, a strong grower, productive, large size, always smooth, perfect in shape and excellent quality. The color is very glossy crimson with a tinge of purple. It grows in clusters of four to six large fruits, retaining its large size late in the season. It ripens with Acme and Perfection, and is entirely free from ribbed and elongated fruit. It is very firm fleshed, has a tough skin and but few seeds. It seldom rots or cracks after a rain like many other of the tender skinned sorts. For shipping and early market it cannot be excelled, on account of solidity, toughness of skin, and especially its handsome color; it can be picked quite green, will look well and ripen up nicely, and keep perfect for a week after it is ripe. Used largely by marketmen and long distance shippers everywhere."
