Pritchard Certified Naturally Grown Seed
(Scarlet Topper)

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' (the female parent) with 'Marglobe' (the paternal or pollen parent). 'Pritchard' 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. Early on, it was also synonymously called "Pritchard's Scarlet Topper" but over the years, it has simply become known as, 'Pritchard'.

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.
