— 'Ponderosa' is a classic old commercial heirloom that set the standard for large, pink fruited varieties in its day. Its regular leaf plants are productive with large fruits, weighing up to two pounds, have small seed cavities, and are borne in clusters of three to five fruits.
They are purplish-pink in color, mild flavored, and excellent for slicing and canning. They do tend to have fair to poor leaf coverage, which under certain conditions, can result in cracking.
