Old German Tomato

In Stock
Old German Certified Naturally Grown Seed

85 days, indeterminate — We have been growing this variety here on the farm since the early 2000s.  The fruits are large, often weighing two pounds but averaging about one pound. They are golden-yellow in color with pink and red marbled throughout the flesh. 

The vines are vigorous and benefit from caging of staking. They tolerate heat well and have an amazingly complex flavor that makes up for their tendency to not be heavy producers. Hint: Just find room for an extra plant. 

Reportedly obtained from the Virginia Mennonite community, 'Old German' was released commercially by the Southern Exposure Seed Exchange back in 1985. Each packet contains approximately 20 seeds.
Old German is a good tomato
This is a beast of a plant. Strong, vigorous and big. You need room to grow these plants. If your tomato cages are not big and staked down well enough, these huge plants will bend the cages over.

Tomatoes grew up to two pounds for me. Every seed germinated. One of the old fashioned favorites. Highly recommend.
