This is another unique variety of tomato via William Schlegel!
Notes From William;
"Bred by me William Schlegel from an uncertain which Brad Gate’s Blue Bicolor and an unknown potato leaf with exserted Stigma in a Joseph Lofthouse short season tomato mix."
Tomatoes are native to northwestern South America and by at least 500 BC they had been domesticated and were being cultivated as far north as modern-day Mexico, enjoyed by Aztec and other civilizations. They spread to Europe and the Caribbean through the Spanish colonizers, where they became staple parts of the food culture in many European countries as well.
William's harvesting tips:

"Wait till tomatoes show at least a blush of color before picking. At first blush they have full sugar content and will have full flavor and viable seed."

Seeds grown by William Schlegel in Ronan, Montana.
30 seeds.

Directions: Start indoors 6-8 weeks before last frost and transplant out after. If transplanting, bury past first set of leaves, add eggshells to soil for calcium, and provide support.
