|Thorburn's 1893 introduction description is quite detailed offering the breeder (quite famous in his era), the interesting color, characteristics about the pulp cells, the texture of the skin (inherited from its mother, 'Peach'), and a hint at the varieties parentage. It was unceremoniously dropped from Thorburn's seed line and last seen in their 1919 seed catalog. No samples of the the variety with provenance have been found, nor was it maintained in the USDA's seedbank, and like so many other old varieties, is presentably extinct.
