80 days. This heirloom was introduced to Seed Savers Exchange by the late Dr. John Wyche, who at one time owned the Cole Brothers Circus and used the manure of elephants to fertilize his heritage gardens. The 1-lb fruit is solid and smooth; the color is a glowing tangerine-orange that always stands out in the kitchen or on the vine. One of the best heirloom orange types for market, with its smooth texture and tropical, sweet taste. Heavy yields.
