Tomato Father Frost

A “standard” red tomato on short potato leafed indeterminate vines

Description

This tomato is from the 2019 seed swap so this page will be updated as we get more information

As a potato leafed variety, it is a little different from the standard tomato. However, it is supposed to be early and (in our experience) many of the early varieties are potato leafed (Bloody Butcher, Quedlinberger Fruhe Liebe, Stupice) so there’s no real surprise there. Its supposedly of Russian/East European origin as again are many of the early varieties so we’re hopeful that this will prove tasty. We grew Bloody Butcher in 2020 and the first ripe fruit on Father Frost were about three weeks later (so not that early).

To be honest, it was nothing particularly special, I think I prefer Gardener’s Delight which produced at the same time
