History: Acquired by Seed Savers Exchange in 2016 from the USDA collection (PI 662841). This variety was collected on behalf of the USDA by Dr. John Morgan (professor of geography at Emory & Henry College) in 2006 from William Avery Carter of Warsaw, North Carolina. Mr. Carter maintains a pick-your-own” patch of about 900 plants. He has grown and saved seed of this variety since about 1980. The tradition was passed to him from his grandfather, Tommy Miller, who lived in nearby Kenansville, NC.
