Introduced in 1885, this remains one of the best-tasting tomatoes available with large pinkish-red tomatoes and a wonderfully rich taste, a bit sweeter and larger than the Red Brandywine. Indeterminate, potato-leafed plants produce huge tomatoes often weighing between 1-2 pounds.
Tomatoes grow well with asparagus, basil, beans, carrots, celery, chives, cucumber, garlic, head lettuce, marigold, mint, nasturtium, onion, parsley, peas, peppers and marigold. Basil will repel flies and mosquitoes from your tomato plants while also improving the growth and flavor. Beebalm, chives and mint will improve the health and flavor of your tomatoes. Keep potatoes, fennel, dill, cabbage and cauliflower away from your tomato plants.
