Tomato Ottos Papa

Medium sized red open pollinated tomato on indeterminate plants.


A standard, red, indeterminate variety wth a reasonable taste (nothing really special), grown for the first time in 2017 when it started cropping in late August/ Early September (2017 was a late year so it may produce earlier in other years).

Whether its better value than the other red standard varieties I don’t know. One problem I have is that I can’t find any information about it on the web so what I don’t know is whether its “just” a standard variety handed down and renamed by somebody.
