Details

This variety was bred by Dr. Harris, Alberta, Canada. It was donated to the USDA in 1971 from Canada. These 1-2 oz. red tomatoes are borne in clusters and have a nice tart flavor. One of the best varieties for cool, short-season climates, and will set fruit in temperatures lower than most. A very prolific producer at 2 harvests per summer. Good for containers as well!
