SIMPLY TOMATOES NOTES:
This is an EXTREMELY RARE Tomato. Go ahead and look it up on the internet. Let us all know if you have any information. I first came upon this Heirloom from Flora Grubb last year. This was not a remarkable tomato in my garden. It produced a small amount of impressive looking tomatoes. They were very pretty, but quite unremarkable in flavor. We have tried again, more out of curiosity than anything else. The plant location, soil and temperature situation are all different. This plant looked pretty paltry early on, but produced fruit in about May. June and July cool conditions made the plant look horrible. Can you say super wilt. Water did not help. There are a few tomatoes on the plant in the middle of August, and the plant is starting to look decent!!! Let's see. As this is such a rare plant, I am determined to see what we can do to get a few decent tomatoes for posterity and a few good photographs at least. Maybe this is why this plant is so rare. Will keep you posted on this one. It is really a pretty specimen.
