5 seeds per packet

Indeterminate - Plants produce decent amounts of tomatoes with a pink/red hue when fully ripe, weighing around 8-10 ounces, sometimes close to a pound. The fruit is a bit of beefsteak with meatiness but also the juiciness of a slicer. Seeds are medium size but few.

If you haven’t heard of this tomato, don’t feel bad. Most haven’t for over 45 years. It was extinct until we sprouted seeds that came from 85-year-old packets.

Two germinated, and 1 survived; we produced cuttings, saved seeds, and continued the process. It isn’t about the money as much as the story behind this variety, the journey it took to get here, and the mission to preserve genetic diversity in seeds!

You all will get to try it for the first time before anyone else and be a part of the history of bringing this back to the home garden where it was intended to be 85 years ago!

Great tomato.

Got the Giant Crimson seeds because it was extinct before, MIGardener brought them back thankfully. The plants are doing great and seeing lots of flower buds forming.

2 are growing

I finally got up the nerve to try germinating this year after holding onto the seeds for 2 years, afraid to screw them up, lol. Both seeds sprouted and they are growing really well, about to be transplanted to their forever spot for the season. Wish me luck! I'd love to see an "extinct" tomato back in circulation again. How exciting to be a part of this history!


Big fan and love everything I have gotten from MIgardener!!!!! Thank you so much for everything yall do!!!!!!
