78 days. (Indeterminate) [WV heirloom, traded by C & O Railroad employees since the early 1900s. The first ‘Ponderosa’ variety was introduced 1891 by Peter Henderson and Co.] Somewhat rough, large-cored, yellow-gold fruits weigh over a pound. Not very tolerant of foliage diseases, but a good producer and pretty, with mild-flavored, sub-acid fruits. Our select strain has larger, more uniform fruits. Pkt.
