The Seed Savers Exchange - One of the two original Bavarian heirlooms from Diane Ott Whealy’s family that started Seed Savers. Potato leaf plants produce large 1-2 pound beefsteak fruits. Meaty flesh with few seeds, very little cracking or blossom scars. Full sweet flavor. Excellent for canning, freezing, and slicing. Indeterminate, 85 days from transplant.
If I could only grow one tomato, this would be it! It’s fruit is always consistent, meaty yet juicy. I love to use with a fried egg, on a sandwich, make sauce, bruschetta and in fresh salads.
