Dr Wyche

This heirloom was introduced to Seed Savers Exchange by the late Dr. John Wyche, who was once a co-owner of 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.
