Details

These sensational multi-purpose tomatoes have an excellent, rich heirloom flavor and a deep red color, inside and out. If it's hard for you to wait for ordinary tomatoes to ripen, try these. In about 8 weeks, they're ready to enjoy! Plants are high-yielding and will produce five to nine 2" fruits per cluster. Bloody Butcher is great for cooler growing regions since fruits ripen quickly, and is good for canning. Fruits are not uniform in size, with some rounded and smaller, while others look more like a beefsteak tomato. A popular variety, but still uncommon in cultivation.
