Ratings & Reviews
Outperformed several other varieties in my garden..
Grew this variety last year along with several other heirloom varieties in North Hudson, WI as an experiment.
The Trophy far outperformed all the others in every way.
Very sturdy plant required less staking/support than the others. Set fruit the best, and flavor was superior. Also, we experienced a very wet late season with several heavy rains and the Trophy was less prone to splitting than the
larger fruit varieties. Will plant again this year and experiment with different techniques but think I’ve found the right one with the Trophy.
Second year planting and did not disappoint. Winds knocked down some vines but they kept producing. This RI tomato has a permanent home in my RI garden!
