History

  • Bred by Joe Bratka's father. Joe found the seeds for this tomato and several others (Red Barn, Mule Team, and Great Divide) in a toolshed, could not get the seeds to germinate, and sent them to Carolyn Male, who succeeded in germinating the seed and shared this variety with other gardeners and SSE members in the mid-1990s.
  • First offered in the Seed Savers 1994 Yearbook by Carolyn Male of Latham, New Jersey (NY MA C), who got the seeds from Joe Bratka of New Jersey.
  • Could be named after Lecil Travis Martin, an American country music singer.
