85 days, Indeterminate. Large, sweet, and extraordinarily popular, these tomatoes are easily 1 lb each. Named for the breeder who, after six years of breeding sold plant starts of this finished product for $1 each and paid off his $6000 dollar mortgage! Very impressive heirloom tomato.
How to grow it:
Start seeds indoors 4-6 weeks before average last frost date. Provide 7-10 hours of direct light each day. Thin to the strongest plant per pot. Transplant 24"-36" apart in full sun near a trellis. Ripe tomatoes are bright red. Water tomatoes only at the base, not the foliage.
