Tomato, offered for the first time in my 1900 catalogue under the name
of "Maule's 1900," found a place for itself at once in the high esteem
of every tomato grower who planted it. That it well deserves the name
"Success" is borne out in fact that in 1900, when I offered $100 for a
name for this variety, 37 of my customers suggested the name Success.
No other name would have been as appropriate, and no better title has
been found for a new vegetable, fruit or flower for many a day. In
shape, Success is smooth, well formed, and extremely deep from stem to
blossom, making it unusually heavy. It ripens evenly to the stem, and
is without ridges or cracks; it has great meatiness and few seeds. It
Is firm without being hard, an unrivaled home tomato and an unequaled
shipper. The vines are vigorous but compact. The joints are short and
it always fruits in large clusters at every second joint, which accounts
for its wonderful productiveness. Success Is the heaviest for its size
of any variety, and on account of its brilliant red color, depth, and
solidity, is the handsomest tomato I have ever seen. During the last
two years almost 10,000 letters have come to hand from my customers,
praising Success in the highest terms. On the market stall, its
beautiful appearance and color makes it sell ahead of all sorts, and its
unusual solidity, few seeds, and desirable form for rapid peeling
without waste, makes it the most desirable canning variety known. The
largest growers of tomatoes for canning and market purposes are all
enthusiastic about Success, and so many orders for five pound lots at
$20.00 have already come to hand, that I would advise early orders from
all desiring so large a quantity. I have never Introduced a variety of
any vegetable that has sprung so quickly into popular favor as the New
"Success" originated with Wm. Miesse, of Ohio, well known as the originator of the fine “Enormous." From trials last season, when it was known as The “Nineteen Hundred’’ Tomato, the introducer received four thousand reports from forty States and Territories, speaking in highest terms of this grand new Tomato. At Fordhook Farms we had two patches of about an acre each; the seed we offer is exclusively of our own growing and extra selected. From our own experience we should pronounce “SUCCESS” the best Novelty in tomatoes of the usual vine-like growth, just as Burpee’s “QUARTER-CENTURY” is the best of all the dwarf tomatoes. Among the host of new tomatoes these two are undoubtedly the “best Novelties for the New Century” and are each in their class “absolutely unequaled.”
