Early, late blight resistant, great tasting, open pollinated, legend red tomato…
68 Days. Determ. OP. Early variety sets in cool weather and produces a huge crop of 8 oz. red, tasty tomatoes. I really can’t say enough good things about this tomato. It will produce a big crop in the most adverse conditions, including heat and greenhouses. Excellent for beginners. Compact plant was bred by Dr. James Baggett at Oregon State University to be late blight resistant. Dr. Baggett should be a hero to all cool area gardeners, (similar to the late Dr. Elwyn Meador from U. of New Hampshire.), as he bred many of the varieties we offer you plus many we don’t carry. In these days of corporations profiting from seed genetics and controlling many university breeding programs with large donations, Dr. Baggett should stand out as a hero even more. He bred open pollinated tomatoes mostly for home gardeners in the Pacific Northwest, where cool nights and days limit production. This is one of his best, as it it extremely difficult to find a late blight resistant, open pollinated tomato.
