The Carter’s Blue came from the Alabama homestead of Colonel Carter in the 1840s. It actually became extinct at one point and a historian and pomologist sought out scion wood from England to reintroduce it to the south. The flesh is juicy and has a wonderful sweet fragrance. The name came from the heavy bloom which is said to have a bluish hue.
