Cow’s Tit

‘Cow’s Tit’ is a variety that the original single plant source was found by Keith Mueller in a Valle Crucis, North Carolina growers field associated with the ‘Mast Farm Inn’ in the summer of 1994. This plant was grown among ‘Mountain Pride’ and ‘Better Boy’ plants, but it was totaly different in size and foliage color. The transplant grower for the farm, which Keith Mueller consulted, said that he had planted no varieties like that and that “it looks like a cow’s tit”. Hence the name of this variety. Indeterminate plants with regular and wispy leaf foliage and very prolific. Red, elongated (up to 7″ long), pepper-shaped fruit, with very good, sweet taste. Perfect for cooking, canning, excellent sauce maker, but also good for fresh. Fruit keeps well after picking.
