Tomato – Jersey Devil

Red, long shaped, cooking tomato on Indeterminate Plants

Description

An excellent cooking tomato which crops heavily and cooks well (provided you let it get really ripe). We grew it for the first time in 2021 from the 2019 seed swap. We would grow it again for cooking (as a salad tomato it lacks flavour). From what I can find out, this cultivar virtually died out but seems to be being re-introduced.

Can’t find where it originates (if you know, let us know), nor what its disease resistance is but it seemed to work for us in the greenhouse.

August 2021 not yet ripe
