  • Seeds originally came from Patty Brown of Ohio. Patty's mother, who lives in West Virginia, bought a plant at an Amish nursery at Hidden Valley, Marsdale, Pennsylvania and Patty saved seeds from the fruits. Patty said that this tomato was sold by the nursery as a Yellow Slicer, and 'West Virginia' was added to the name to note its origin.
