|1884 Strawberry Wedge|
- Carrie Jones of Covington, Washington (WA JO C) 09
- Discovered in 1994 by Darrell Merrell of Tulsa, Oklahoma (OK ME D) in his patch of 12 1884 tomato plants grown from seed purchased from The Tomato Seed Company (no longer in business). 3 plants were different and produced strawberry wedge-shaped fruits instead of expected beefsteaks, hence the name. Subsequent growouts showed that the off-type was stable.
- It could have been that a few stray seed of a known heart-shaped variety that accidentally got mixed in, but it is impossible to prove it or dispute.
- First offered in the Seed Savers 1997 Yearbook by Darrell Merrell of Tulsa, Oklahoma (OK ME D).
