Porter's Pride

78 days, indeterminate — Also known as 'Improved Porter' or 'Porter's Improved', 'Porter's Pride' was developed in and for Texas weather to allow fruit to set even in dry, hot climates. The plants are large with good leaf  coverage.  Its fruit are small, deep globe-shaped, red and about four ounces in weight. Its good, complex taste makes it a favorite for eating fresh or canning and juicing. Sunburn and crack resistant.

The 1959 Porter & Son Seed Company catalog has the following description:
"Porter's Pride Tomato is an ideal variety for home gardens and for summer and fall marketing.  Medium sized fruits of excellent quality and flavor are very firm and have the best keeping qualities of any tomato.  Scarlet-red fruits of uniform size and shape are smooth and meaty and very flavorful."
'Porter's Pride' was released by the now long defunct Porter & Son Seed Company of Stephenville, Texas who was a regional seed provider from its founding in 1912 until is closing in 1994.

Although we have grown out samples from many seed companies supposedly selling this variety, all have turned out to be inaccurate, that is, not 'Porter's Pride'. This page was created for informational purposes. If you happen to either have seed to share or know of a source, please contact us.
