Similar to 'Siletz' and 'Oregon Spring'. Adapted for the Pacific Northwest and other cool areas. Each packet contains approximately 20 seeds.

Productive, but killed by early blight
I grew these along with Stupice and Old Brooks. All three are claimed (at least, in some articles) to be resistant to early and late blight...but all three got early blight. These got it first, and worst, and were killed by it before they had the chance to resist late blight. That may have been my fault--I thought since these were determinate they didn't have to be pruned, but then the plants got bigger than I thought they would, and were crowding each other, outgrowing their thirty inch cages, etc. They got Anthracnose too. On the other hand, the basil planted with them all expired of Fusarium Wilt, but they weren't affected. Other than the early blight, these were great. 100% germination, started setting fruit earlier than claimed, lots of tomatoes set, tomatoes were a nice size for canning. In the cold they still set tomatoes but they were cat-faced (I don't care). Taste was average. Off of eight unhealthy plants, during the month of August when they were really producing, I got enough tomato sauce for my family of four to have spaghetti once a week for a year. If only half the tomatoes hadn't been blighted. Will try these again next year. And will prune this time!

VSC NOTES: Thank you for the great, detailed review. It sounds like it did pretty well under the circumstances. You may want to contact your local ag extension agent and see if they have any suggestions about addressing the disease issues you have in your garden.

Since you brought up pruning and since many people may not know about pruning tomatoes, I would like to make a couple of points. Firstly, if you don't have disease issues in your garden, pruning is not necessary. And if you do prune, be sure to observe the same "universal precautions" that you would when caring for people. That is, sterilize tools after pruning one plant before moving to the next. This helps to prevent the spread of disease from sick to healthy plants. ~Mike
