Product description

The Seed Savers Exchange - Now you too can grow this champion tomato! Bred as a processing tomato, it took top honors in the slicing division at the 2018 Seed Savers Exchange Tomato Tasting event. The University of Wisconsin developed the variety and released it in 1957. While the fruits aren’t quite as red as those of the well-known ‘Wisconsin 55’ tomato, also developed by the University of Wisconsin, they average just a bit larger. Its plants are semi-determinate and benefit from staking. 80-90 days.
