Tomato Lukullus

A red standard sized heritage/open pollinated tomato on indeterminate vines.


Another of the tomatoes from the 2019 seed swap that we didn’t have space to grow in 2020 so the description comes from the web, not our own experience.

Said to be a German commercial variety from the 1900s and a cross between Danish Export and Jewel (neither of which we have any experience of). It produced fairly large clusters of medium sized standard shaped tomatoes. One of those “standard red” tomatoes that bulk out the growing but don’t appear to provide anything special.

It seems to have a tendency to some green around the stalk (althogh whether that’s picking them slightly early is a question.
