Improved Porter
80 days, indeterminate — Also known as 'Porter's Pride', it was developed in and for Texas weather.  It produces well, setting fruit even in dry, hot climates.  Its fruit are ovate (egg-shaped), dark pink in color, about an inch and a half long and weigh two to four ounces.  Its good, complex taste makes it a favorite for eating fresh or canning and juicing.

The 1959 Porter & Son Seed Company catalog has the following description:
"Porter's Pride Tomato is an ideal variety for home gardens and for summer and fall marketing.  Medium sized fruits of excellent quality and flavor are very firm and have the best keeping qualities of any tomato.  Scarlet-red fruits of uniform size and shape are smooth and meaty and very flavorful."
'Improved Porter' was released by the now long defunct Porter & Son Seed Company of Stephenville, Texas who was a regional seed provider from its founding in 1912 until is closing in 1994.  Each packet contains approximately 20 seeds.
