Variable sized red heritage tomato on compact indeterminate potato leafed plants.
A very early compact indeterminate, potato leafed red tomato of variable size. Very similar in both appearance and taste to Bloody Butcher and Stupice (in fact so similar that I wonder if they are actually the same cultivar from different sources), it certainly produces early fruit and goes on well through the season although the plant can look a little “weedy”.
We grow this in a cycle with Bloody Butcher and Stupice in order to get the earliest tomatoes in the season. We grew it again in 2017 and it was as productive as ever.
