AUNT RUBY’S GERMAN GREEN
AUNT RUBY’S GERMAN GREEN - (I) – Catalog #5
Leaf Type - TBD
A productive heirloom beefsteak tomato of German origin that was brought into circulation by Rick Burkhart if Indiana whose family has raised it for 25 years. Our organic tomato seeds produce big, indeterminate, vigorous, potato-leaf tomato plants that yield abundant crops of 1-pound, deep-pink, juicy tomatoes with little cracking. Considered among the best heirloom tomatoes.
Excellent tomato in salads and on sandwiches. Aunt Ginny's Purple is an American favorite tomato.
SIMPLY TOMATOES NOTES:
As of September 5th, we have not enjoyed any of these wonderful looking tomatoes with deep green striations; seems one of the night critters beats us to them even when they are not ripe. Strange as we have 31 different varieties of tomatoes in the garden this year and this is the only tomato being devoured. Any clues, please let me know!
