(Solanum lycopersicum) Said to have originated in a village 20 miles from
Budapest around 1900. Jerry Muller of Alabama
(formerly of Tennessee) was the first SSE member to
offer this variety; in 1988 he listed his seed source as
Ed Simon of Pennsylvania. Huge pink oxheart fruits
weigh upwards of one pound. Very few seeds and
almost no cracking. One of our favorites for fresh
eating, canning, and for making roasted tomato
sauce. Indeterminate, 85 days from transplant.
6 weeks before last frost
Cage, stake or trellis
Green Thumb Tip Sow seeds indoors ¼" deep. Tomatoes are sensitive
to freezing temperatures, so wait to transplant
outdoors until the soil is warm. Plant in full sun. ± 14,300 seeds/oz
