Old fashioned American favorite heirloom tomato that was developed by Dr. A. F. Yeager of North Dakota University and was listed by Oscar H. Will & Co. in 1937. TomatoFest organic seeds produce dwarf, compact, determinate plants that were listed in the McFayden Seed Catalog as a “self-pruning,” and needing no staking. Plants produce huge amounts of 2-3″, red, round tomatoes that have exceptional, rich, complex and slightly acidic flavors. This is a great canning and salad tomato. Produces well in cooler damp weather, greenhouse or containers.
