Tomato, Giant of Siebenburgen (Organic)
Solanum lycopersicum. 80-85 days. Indet.
Big, red oxheart fruit with tender skin. This is a giant tomato, good for fresh eating but best broiled or cooked into soup or sauce. Sometimes too much for one person to eat at once. Late but high yields. We wait every year for this one to ripen and are never disappointed because the flavor is incredibly good, shockingly sweet and rich. Did we mention this tomato is huge? Originating in Siebenburgen, the seven medieval cities established by the ethnic German Saxons in Transylvania, Romania. Siebenburgen is not synonymous with Transylvania but is part of its cultural makeup. Given to The Seed Ambassadors Project by Gerhard Bohl in Germany.
