Tommy Toe Tomato

Vigorous with Heavy Yields

Glossy, bright red, 1 in. fruits have a rich, complex flavor that is not overly sweet. Tommy Toe Candy Tomato has won many taste tests over the years. Its extremely vigorous plants produce hundreds of fruits, even in heat and humidity. The fruits are excellent for snacking and fresh salads. This heirloom variety, originating in the Ozarks in the 1900s, is also known as Steakhouse. Its indeterminate vines exhibit good disease resistance and keep producing until frost. Staking is recommended. Seeds can be planted indoors about 6-8 weeks before transplanting outdoors in the garden. Approx. 30 seeds per pkt. 75 DAYS.
