Ye Gads! My windows are hideous. But that’s not the point. The point is that I scored a Heinz Tomato plant at the Tomato Ladies stand down at the Farmers’ Market this morning. I wanted to try this variety and thought I would wait until next season. What a nice surprise to see this variety available to me for a simple $2 investment.
This is what Victory Seeds has to say about this variety:
75 days, determinate — An early, bright red, crack resistant fruit. Heavy yielder with Fusarium and Verticillium disease resistance. A good processing type tomato bred and originally released by the Heinz Company.
Crack resistant?! That’s a relief. It’s good to know that “Just Say ‘No’” is working.
There are several sub varieties of the Heinz. All I know is “Heinz”.
Where were you in 1979?!
