This heirloom variety was originally released in 1944 by the University of Nebraska and is worth planting today because of its incredible flavor and reliably large harvests even in hot weather. Although this appears to be just an average size (6 oz.), unassuming red tomato, you just have to grow it to believe how good it is -- sweet yet tangy and full of those rich, complex flavors that make a delicious tomato memorable. Extraordinary taste in a round, red tomato. Indeterminate. 70 days.
Enormous jalapenos that are bigger than any we have trialed in the past. The fruit are nearly 5 inches long and produce great yields of outstanding fruit that turn from green to red.

It is also great for grilling or stuffing. 70 days to mature green fruit.
