Extremely well adapted. They smell so good that they will make you drool!
(aka Illinois Hardshell) Introduced in 1947 by F. H. Woodruff & Sons. Hands down, one of the best heirloom varieties around for shipping and roadside stands. Aromatic fruits weigh 5-8 pounds, are heavily needed and highly flavored. Extremely well adapted to the upper Midwest. They smell so good that they will make you drool!
