Amish heirloom tomato gold standard for taste! Unusually upright, potato leaved plants produce large 8-16 oz luscious reddish-pink beefsteak-shaped meaty fruits that set one or 2 per cluster and ripen gradually- and are well worth the wait! Exceptional gourmet flavor that tantalizes the taste buds with rich succulent sweet old-fashioned flavor. Long season variety that produces until frost. Once you try this one, you may never grow another variety.
Pollination occurs by insect, bird, wind, humans, or other natural mechanisms. Because there are no restrictions on the flow of pollen between individuals, open-pollinated plants are more genetically diverse. However, as long as pollen is not shared between different varieties within the same species, then the seed produced will remain true-to-type year after year.
This variety has a history of being passed down within a family or community, similar to the generational sharing of certain items like jewelry or furniture.
Indeterminates produce plants as large as you will allow them to grow. They have many widely spaced branches, numerous suckers, and produce tomatoes all season long. These are the varieties that can be manipulated in all sorts of fashion to make the plants conform to your needs.
