Homestead 24

80 days, determinate — Originally released as 'Homestead No. 24', it sets fruit under a wide range of conditions, making it popular the world over. The plants are large with heavy foliage and produce seven to eight ounce red fruits that are meaty, firm, and consistently uniform. It is resistant to fusarium wilt.[1]

Released in 1956 by the Asgrow Seed Co., New Haven, Connecticut. 'Homestead 24' is a stabilized selection of 'Homestead' whose parentage was a stabilized complex cross ((Victor x Dobbies Champion) x Pan American x Rutgers).[1] Each packet contains approximately 20 seeds, and there are about 85 seeds per 0.25 gram.
A surprisingly nice tomato. Maybe 65 days from transplant. Producing steadily over this month. Meaty, few seeds, tends to sweet more than acid. Will plant again next year. I did provide lattice shade.
