Description
Early Detroit Certified Naturally Grown Seed

67 days, indeterminate — 'Early Detroit' fruits are firm and juicy, beautifully bright-pink in color, two to four ounces in weight, globe-shaped, with a good flavor and a sweet aftertaste.

Bred by Mr. Rosendahl of Ft. Leavenworth, Kansas and released by the D. M. Ferry Seed Company in 1909.[1,2] Our seed originated from USDA GRIN accession number PI 355097.

An interesting historical fact is that 'Gulf State Market' was found by Walter Richards of Crystal Springs, Mississippi as a single plant in a field of 'Early Detroit' tomatoes in 1917. Each packet contains approximately 20 seeds.

Taste is the key
Not only is this tomato early and reliable, but the taste is superb as well! Several who were the recipients of my extra plants declared it the best tomato they ever tasted!
