An heirloom of Teresa Gilbertie from Westport, Connecticut, it was already being shared in 1995 at SSE.
Extra large, glossy red and very solid plum shaped fruits of 6-7” long and 10-12 oz. It is unusual to find a paste this size. The fruit have a little crook in the neck that I've not seen in any other pastes. The deep rich flavor makes an excellent sauce
