Description
McGee Certified Naturally Grown Seed
55 days, indeterminate — 'McGee' is a very early variety. Its fruits weigh between one to three ounces and are red, smooth-skinned, and globe-shaped. They are pleasantly mild, slightly tart with a good lingering aftertaste.  It is a heavy producer and used for juicing and canning.

The 'McGee' is named after its originator and early promoter, Professor M. C. McGee (1858-1926) of San Marcos, Texas.  His obituary stated, "Another of his achievements was the propagation of a tomato, the famous McGee tomato which for many years was extensively grown throughout Texas and the southern states."  After his death, his family continued to run small classified advertisements in newspapers throughout the South. Reuter's Seed Company of New Orleans listed it in their 1928 catalog.

We received seed and grew out our stock from the USDA, ARS accession number PI 644964. Each packet contains approximately 20 seeds.

Mr.
What a great little tomato. These fellows don't stop growing or producing large amounts of fruit till frost. I wished I had known they were going to grow so tall and I would have put out fewer plants and trellised them much higher. My wife canned 50 quarts of juice and it looks great in the jar. One bad thing is the tomato has a tendency to split on the vine if not kept picked quickly.
