This heirloom is medium sized and a paste tomato what is perfect for slicing or canning . I like it because it doesn't crack, nor have any disease problems and reliably produces abundant fruits . There is not as much juice in the tomato so it makes a good slicer for sandwiches . It is my favorite canning tomato as it fits perfectly into a regular size jar . We have grown it here for 15 years

All of our seed offerings were grown here. We have been seed savers for 20 years. Our seeds are packaged in original art packets, hand folded with 100% recycled paper. Instructions for growing are not on the packs but are on the listing under seed template. Books on gardening as well as many catalogs carry general information on growing seeds. I am available by e-mail or phone to answer any growing questions as well. You won't find that service from many sources of seeds . The shipping on our orders also includes the processing and handling charges which is also less or equal to most seed companies. Remember we hand pack each order and drive from the farm to the post office to ship your order. I go every other day so I also have time to garden.
