Sheboygan Slow Food USA - Ark of Taste Certified Naturally Grown Seed

90 days, indeterminate — The regular leaf vines of 'Sheboygan' are vigorous and productive. The paste-type fruits are pink in color, weigh between four and nine ounces each but average six. Unlike most bland paste tomatoes, 'Sheboygan' delivers big flavor that is balanced and complex making them excellent for fresh eating, processed into paste or sauce, or for canning.

Introduced to seed savers in 1998 by heirloom preservationist Dr. Jeff Nekola who described it as being, " of my best new varieties of 1997."  He continued saying, "My source said that this variety has been grown since the early part of the century [1900s] in Sheboygan [Wisconsin] by Lithuanian immigrants." Each packet contains approximately 20 seeds.
Absolutely giant plant
I grew around a half dozen Sheboygan plants from seed starting indoors in early March. By the time I planted one outside in mid-late May, it was one of my bigger plants, and right now around 50 days later, it's over four feet tall and also four feet wide and totally loaded with (green) tomatoes. So while I can't write a review commending the taste of the tomatoes quite yet, I felt it was worth sharing that the plants are and were vigorous from the start until now. The seeds germinated very well, and the plants have grown about as well as one could expect especially given the fact that the plants don't get more than 5-6 hours of sun per day, and I counted over 3 dozen tomatoes on the plant the other day. Overall, very impressed with these seeds.
