7.8. D. M. Rich, bright red. Medium height. This was considered by Mr. Brand to be one of the finest reds he had. He worked up a large stock of it and was about to push it as much as he could, when the 1921 rating list came out with a rating of 7.8. This killed it and he dumped the stock on the market at ten cents a root. However those who have it still consider it one of the good reds.
