Tomato, Pruden’s Purple (Organic)
$3.50 – $13.00
Solanum lycopersicum. Pink. 72 days. Indet. Potato Leaf.
This is one of the more common tomato varieties that we feel compelled to add to our catalog because it’s just so excellent. Beautiful, giant, pink fruit that no tomato lover could possibly resist. Earlier to mature and more productive than the classic Brandywine, Pruden’s Purple still develops that sweet heirloom flavor even in cool summers. Silky texture is great for fresh eating, whether on sandwiches or just sliced with a little salt. Yum! Fruit can grow to over 1 lb, have excellent flavor and texture, and resist cracking. A remarkably easy to grow variety for its size. Resistant to many foliar diseases and even reputed to have some field resistance to the dreaded tomato blight. Not bad for an old-fashioned tomato.
