Details

These small 1-2 oz. round/oval red fruits have a very good balanced flavor. This heirloom originated from Paul Ross of Vancouver, Canada. This tomato has been grown in the Ross family for over 50 years. Paul's mother-in-law bought a tomato from Safeway in the Toronto area in the 50s. She saved seeds from it and grew it since then in Toronto, Ontario. Paul Ross brought the seed with him to Vancouver and grew this tomato in Vancouver since the 90s.
