This is an Alan Bishop creation. Developed from a cross of Emeraude, Aunt Ruby’s German Green, and Brandywine. One of my all time FAVORITE Green When Ripes (GWR). A truly superb variety. If you like Green Giant, this is right up there in taste. I grow it every year. Beautiful green beefsteaks with a firm interior and mild, yet sweet taste.
Love that it is named after la fée verte, the spirit of legend developed in Switzerland and France around the turn of the 19th century.
