These tomato seeds were passed to the late Joe Thieneman, a nurseryman from Louisville, Kentucky by an Australian during WWII. Joe grew it continuously thereafter and to this day, his family still grows it and sells plants in their nursery. Seeds were passed to Gary Ibsen around 2007. Introduced in Seed Savers 2007 Yearbook by Neil Lockhart of Oblong, Illinois. Our organic tomato seeds produce large, indeterminate, regular-leaf tomato plants that are moderate to heavy producers of HUGE, red, 1 lb. meaty, heart-shaped tomatoes that are filled with wonderful, complex and well-balanced sweet flavors, with just enough acid to have you grateful for the experience. A good showplace tomato and perfect for slicing into sandwiches and salads and making tomato sauce. Rare tomato seeds.
