Ark of Taste
Also called Wattaugua, Black Coal, Thunderbolt, Black Hover, and Baltimore Red.
The Hoover is large in size with a roundish, slightly conical shape. This heirloom variety has a striking appearance since the skin is composed of two shades of intense, dark red (sometimes making the skin appear black). The skin is also covered with large dots. The Hoover has yellowish flesh which is fairly juicy with a slightly acidic flavor.
