90 days, indeterminate
— The regular leaf vines of 'Redmon Giant' are vigorous, grow up to six feet tall, and produce pink fruit that are of variable shape and smoothness, and as its name implies, giant! Typically ranging from ten to sixteen ounces, two-and-a-half to three pounders are not unusual. An excellent slicing tomato, the flesh is very meaty and solid, yet juicy, sweet, mild and delicious with very few seeds.
'Redmon Giant' was sent to us by Craig LeHoullier
who received the seed from from a gardener in Mineral Virginia named Chris Thompson. Chris originally received the tomato from its developer, Mike Redmon of Missouri, who created the variety, through selection.[1,2]
As described to us, it was developed as a "bragging rights
" tomato and if that was the case, we believe that Mike succeeded! To read the complete history, in his own words, you can read a copy of the email that Mike Redmon sent us by clicking on the "Reference Information" tab. Each packet contains approximately 20 seeds.
