A lovely hard-to-find heirloom from the mountains around Crab Orchard, Tennessee, producing large, meaty 1lb tomatoes, that are beautifully striped with red and orange with a low acid and sweet and mild flavour, making them perfect for eating like fruit. This good yielding variety is both attractive and delicious. An American grower says: "This tomato has a great taste and I don't like tomatoes that much, but this is my favourite and yes I do eat this one like fruit, you can't get this taste in the stores!" (Cordon)
Seeds are surface-sown or covered only slightly. Do not allow the soil to dry out. Containers are held in warm conditions until sprouts appear, which may take anywhere from 3-10 days. Move sprouting plantings immediately to bright light conditions, such as a south-facing window. Inadequate light is a frequent cause of failure of young seedlings. At about the time of last frost, set out seedlings into pots. Remove side-shoots and support the plant.
