Millet's Dakota Certified Naturally Grown Seed

77 days, indeterminate — The fruit of 'Millet's Dakota' are a beautiful red color, are four to eight ounces each, and are oblate in shape. Listed in the 1934 Oscar H. Will's Seed Annual as, "The hardiest, most drought resistant early Tomato."

'Millet's Dakota' originated from John W. Millet of Bismarck, North Dakota, and was introduced by Will's in 1913. Our parent stock source was USDA ARS accession number NSL 27105 (PI644967). Each packet contains approximately 20 seeds.
One of my favorites
In my garden here in Missouri, it produced heavily and was crack resistant. In the kitchen, they are exceptionally easy to peel and have a great, old-fashioned tomato flavor. Not the largest tomato (averaged 6 to 8 oz. for me) but a handy size for canning.

Cool early tomato; good size.
This was one of my first tomatoes to set fruit in 2018, out of about 60 varieties. The fruits get pretty large for an early tomato. Production is decent. The earliest fruits to ripen on the plant weren't my favorite for taste, but sometimes flavor changes through the season (and I need to taste it again; it got hidden by other plants growing around it). The plant wasn't terribly large. We had it growing with black plastic covering the ground, and we rarely watered the tomatoes, this year.

It's a promising variety. You should probably grow it and see what you think. Varieties I favored over it, this year (grown in the same conditions), include Brandy Boy (stabilized version), Frosty F. House, Mountain Princess, and Sausage. I favored it over many others, though.
