Exceptional characteristics
Ben Mercer is the most incredibly sunfast of all green-throated dark reds and it is the most vigorous, heavy-blooming of them all. It has incredible fertility and is in the parentage of more of our upcoming dark reds than any other. Like young Ben, an accomplished athlete, this one has stamina and does not like to give up.
