According to Texas Cooperative Extension, "Nacogdoches" was Found in Nacogdoches, Texas growing under an abandoned motel overhang. Six plants were grown in the garden of Tillie Jungman, near Castroville, Texas. Two of the plants were clearly superior to the other four, being more vigorous and disease-resistant.
