New King Certified Naturally Grown Seed
85 days, indeterminate — The fruits are large (up to one pound), pink in color and flattened globe shaped.  Similar to 'Ponderosa'.

The history of 'New King' is elusive.  It is now a relatively rare variety with most suppliers copying each others information.  All simply make a passing statements to it as being, "a very old Vaughan Seed Company variety."  I believe that the origin of this statement comes from the fact that the source listed in the USDA GRIN database is Vaughan's, 1941.

I have reviewed Vaughan catalogs from the 1890s through the 1920s and although they list 'Ponderosa', there is no 'New King'.  Our collection is spotty for the later years but I did find a very small, brief entry in their 1943 edition and by the 1953 edition, it was no longer listed.

Our original foundation stock is USDA GRIN accession number PI 636248.  Each packet contains approximately 20 seeds.
