Description: Indeterminate. This tomato was developed by the famous Atlee Burpee seed company before the days of refrigeration for it’s ability to ripen slowly after picking over a period of many months. The tomato never really goes bright red on the vine, you will get to know when to pick it for best results. If you have a cellar and live without power this tomato is a must! It is medium large round tomato with good taste and disease resistance. We love it!
