(55 days) Also known as Bassano, for the Venetian hill town in which it originated. Has been cultivated in the States since the 1840s, was listed by Fearing Burr in 1863, and offered by Vick’s for 75¢ per lb in 1877. Beautiful when sliced, this heirloom home – garden type attracts attention in the kitchen with its alternating interior rings of pink and white.
