Solanum lycopersicum

Bring down the house with these fat, beefsteak beauties!


This heirloom is rumored to have helped Halladay pay off his mortgage in the 1930s after he sold the plants from his stabilized cross for $1 apiece. It's a delicious, juicy, sweet beefsteak type with thin skin and huge, fleshy fruits. Give strong support--this one will bring down wimpy trellises!

Seeds grown by Affinity Farm in Moscow, Idaho, Field Goods Farm in Boise, Idaho, and Green Phoenix Farm in Salt Lake City, Utah.

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