It’s no wonder this slicing tomato has long been a favorite of George and Jerreth McLaughlin, who shared it with Seed Savers Exchange in 2005. Vigorous, flavorful, and disease-resistant, it received high marks from gardeners who grew it as part of SSE’s ADAPT community science program. Maturing mid- to late-season, the tomatoes have a sweet and zingy flavor, measure 2.5” tall by 3” wide, and weigh 4-7 ounces. 70-75 days from transplant. Organic.
