An unusual tomato with medium-large, flattened globe fruits that are dusky pink with darker pink/purple shoulders. The multicolor interior is purplish/pinkish. Abundant, fruits are very sweet and juicy with a smoky flavor. Thick, rosy brown skin resists cracking. Good foliage cover prevents sunburn.

What is an “indeterminate tomato’?

Indeterminate tomatoes will grow and produce fruit until killed by frost. They can reach heights of 6-12 feet. Plants can be staked or allowed to trail on the ground.

What is an ‘heirloom tomato’?

Heirloom tomatoes are the varieties that our Grandmothers and Grandfathers grew. They are extremely flavourfull and juicy with a thin skin. They come in odd colours from striped green, to purple and black to all shades of red and yellow. They come usually in strange shapes and sizes from small to giant. Delicious to eat whole or in sandwiches or in salads or sliced and put in oil and seasoned.
