Description
Pritchard (Scarlet Topper) Certified Naturally Grown Seed
90 days, semi-determinate — The fruits are scarlet red, a nice globe shape, weigh five to ten ounces, mild flavored and are very productive. The plants are relatively compact, more or less determinate, with large, dark green leaves that provide good fruit coverage.

It was developed in 1926 as a stabilized from a cross of 'Cooper's Special' with 'Marglobe'.  It is reportedly resistant to fusarium wilt, nailhead, and cracking.

Originally called 'Scarlet Topper', it was released by the USDA, Tennessee Station and renamed in 1932 to honor plant breeder, Dr. Fred J. Pritchard, who had passed away in January of 1931. Henry Field presented it as one of "Henry's Favortites" in his 1933 seed annual.  It was also an "All-America Selection®" winner in 1933. Each packet contains approximately 20 seeds.
