Tomato, Maria Nagy Giant (Organic)

Solanum lycopersicum. 85 days. Indet.

Large, perfect 10-16 oz 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 criteria and this one meets ours 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 many wish they still did.

Geographical Origin


Sow indoors in flats with good potting soil as early as February, but no later than April. Keep warm and well-watered. Up pot seedlings into 4” pots once they have two true leaves. Transplant into the garden once danger of frost has passed.

Seed Saving

Collect seeds from ripe fruit by squeezing into a jar and add 25% more water. Wait a few days for mold to form. When seeds sink and gel-sac is gone, stir, add water, then decant and rinse to clean. Dry thoroughly. Tomatoes are mostly self-pollinating; isolation is not usually needed for seeds to be true to type.

    Where did you grow this variety? Oregon

    Wasn’t sure what to expect with this new variety (to me). The plants were so easy to grow, the seeds were a 100% germ rate. Tomatoes grew perfectly with gobs and gobs of huge fruits (Portland, Oregon, Z8). But it was the flavor that was absolutely incredible. One bite and you literally pause chewing because you’ve never tasted a tomato like this. Never. I assure you, never. These large fruits were a glorious deep red, firm, sweet, tart, and everything else. I have grown dozens of tomatoes in my lifetime, and have loved most of them. But this one is in a class all by itself. It just doesn’t compare. If you’re on the fence, just buy it. I swear on all the sacred things you won’t regret this.
