Heidi Tomato

In Stock

Elongated, red, thin-skinned, thick-walled, meaty.
Heidi Certified Naturally Grown Seed

90 days, semi-determinate — A very productive paste tomatovariety. The fruit are elongated, red, thin-skinned, thick-walled, meaty, weighing about three ounces and have very few seeds. Unlike typical bland tasting paste tomatoes, 'Heidi' has an excellent, full, rich flavor. Great for sauces.

We received our original seed from Dr. Carolyn Male (NY MA C). She received the variety from a student of hers, Heidi Iyok, from Cameroon, West Africa.

Carolyn Male noted that although classified as a paste-type tomato, it does not seem to have a problem with blossom end rot and is ". . . remarkably tolerant of all foliage diseases in my zone 5 garden." Each packet contains approximately 20 seeds.
Grow Heidi!!!
If you don't like a tomato that splits ... grow Heidi. If you live where you can get instant summer weather (above 90ºF in early May) ... grow Heidi. If you like a paste type tomato with a bit more juice, and a whole lot more flavor ... grow Heidi. How about lack of disease issues? ... grow Heidi.

We hit 90ºF within two weeks of a 36ºF low on April 26th, but we are picking huge quantities of Heidi tomatoes. I have this tomato in a cage that is a bit too large for it ... poor thing is squatting under the weight of the fruit. If there was a higher rating, I would give it to this tomato. I find it to be a very versatile tomato here in South Central Oklahoma.

Great producer
I've grown Heidi for a few years now. It laughs at Oklahoma heat and I think it even sets fruit at higher temps. It's not mealy, can be used for salads as well as paste. Seems to be pest resistant as well. It's on my "always" list.

One of my favorite paste types ... Productive.
Plants did well for quite awhile then finally caught blight and died off. Still managed to harvest tons of tomatoes. Very good flavor not many seeds, one of my favorite paste types so far. I highly recommend.
