Brimmer Pink Tomato
- From the Collection
- New for 2020
- Few seeds and mild flavor
- Indeterminate - resistant to splitting and cracking
- 70-80 days from transplant
There’s a reason this pink beefsteak variety took home the Grand Prize at the 1907 Jamestown (Virginia) Exposition long before Seed Savers Exchange acquired it in 2015 from the late Gary Staley. Its juicy, pink flesh has few seeds and a mild flavor, while its thick skin is resistant to splitting and cracking, making it a good choice for canning. The hefty fruits weigh a half to a full pound and measure 3-4" wide. The tall, leafy plants are just as impressive, reaching 5-5.5' tall. Indeterminate. 70-80 days from transplant.
