Developed by Craig LeHouillier, USA. Large 200-500 gram beefsteak-like fruit, flattened with curved shoulders.
A fairly new variety, developed by Craig LeHouillier in 1997 and presented in 2002 at the S.S. Yearbook. The result of a cross between a Brandywine and an unknown parent, due to chance, hence the name "Lucky Cross".
Large fruit of 200 to 500 grams, beefsteak type, flattened with curved shoulders and ribbed at the top. Depression at the stem attachment, deep and corky, trace of umbilicus at one point.
Bicoloured orange-yellow and red, the shoulders changing from green to orange-red only when fully ripe.
Beefy flesh similar to other Brandywines, orange-yellow with pink mottling, darkening at full maturity. Fabulous flavour, complex, rich but sweet, superior to many Brandywines.
A late season variety with potato foliage and great development.
