Commercially re-introduced by Two Seeds in a Pod Heirloom Seed Co

Seed Crop 2016

This variety got my attention when I was browsing Peter Henderson and Co’s 1891 seed catalog which is part of our company’s heirloom seed library. We grew our plants from USDA accession number PI 644906.

Fruit size is advertised to be large in Henderson’s catalog and this is the only thing that doesn’t seem to be consistent between our results and the variety description, as far as today’s large tomato size goes. Fruits are generally in the range of 2.5-4 oz. Prolific plants have regular, sparse foliage and determinate growth habit. Red fruits are ready to harvest in 55-60 days and offer a good balance of sweetness and acidity. 

Each package contains 10+ seeds
