Aunt Ruby's German Green Slow Food USA - Ark of Taste Certified Naturally Grown Seed

80 days, indeterminate — A really nice beefsteak-type tomato with fruits are five inches in diameter by four inches deep, weigh one pound or more and remain green colored at maturity. Sweet juicy flesh, refreshing spicy flavor.

This family heirloom was introduced to the general public by Ruby E. Arnold (1915-1997) of Greeneville, Tennessee.  According to the family, they are not sure how, when or why the "German" got added to the name of this variety.  They are not from Germany and they have no known German ancestry.

They speculate that Ruby's may have selected her tomato from a now unknown variety from seed originally sourced from a German-speaking Amish seedsman in their area named Ivan Snapp.[1]  Each packet contains approximately 20 seeds.
