Tomato, Maria Nagy Giant (Organic)
Solanum lycopersicum. 85 days. Indet.
Large, perfect globes have a really sweet, rich flavor. Late to come on but very productive once it gets going. The flavor is just incredible, making it well worth the wait. We all have our ideal red slicer tomato and this one meets our ideals for flavor, size, texture, and yield. We received this variety from seed steward Maria Nagy in Turda, Romania. When she gave it to us, during our Seed Ambassadors trip to Transylvania in 2008, she said she had harvested 8 kilos (17.6 lbs) of fruit from one plant! It is one of the heritage tomatoes farmers in her area once grew and all wish they still did.
