88 days, indeterminate — 'Ponderosa' is a classic old commercial heirloom that set the standard for large, pink fruited varieties in its day. Its regular leaf plants are productive with large fruits, weighing up to two pounds, have small seed cavities, and are borne in clusters of three to five fruits.

They are purplish-pink in color, mild flavored, and excellent for slicing and canning. They do tend to have fair to poor leaf coverage, which under certain conditions, can result in cracking.

Pre-released by Peter Henderson in 1891 as "Number 400," its name was changed to 'Ponderosa' upon its debut in 1892.[1] Each packet contains approximately 20 seeds.

Great Tomato
Nice, big, one-slice, to put on sandwich, Very good tasting too, and hardy, not a hard skin like many modern tomatoes. My grandfather grew these, I searched and found them here. Thanks, Victory Seeds!

Get ready to impress your friends! These put on some really nice big round slightly flat on the bottom tomatoes. Weighed some up to 20 ounces. Will definitely keep this one in the garden!
