Charles McKellip. (Brand, 1907.) 7.8 (Sym. 1921). Crimson.

CHARLES McKELLIP (Brand, 1907) - Double - Red - Midseason. Medium height. Rich bright red. 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. List in Bulletin 130. Midseason.
