Tatiana Kouchnareva (B.C KO T). Climbing Trip-L-Crop - ripe fruit. 2013-09-13.

B.C KO T

Indet., potato leaf, large pink beefsteaks, 10-14 oz. In our garden it was not as high yielding as advertised, but the plants did not get the best location and got barely 5 hrs of direct sunshine per day, so it would be unfair to judge them too harshly.

Seed source:

Reimer Seeds / Dan and Val McMurray of Wynndel, British Columbia, Canada (B.C MC D) 06

Year grown: 2011

Location: Zone 7b, PNW, Anmore, BC, Canada (760 ft above sea level)


GERM SC K

pink, small beefsteak tomato, regular leaf (Tatiana: incorrect, should be potato leaf'), indet., very late.

Seed source:

Reimer Seeds / CV Treml (Raritätengärtnerei Treml)

Year grown: 2004

Location: Germany


TN MA T

Indeterminate, regular leaf, medium-large beefsteaks. Some ruffling on most fruits. Pink tomatoes weighed 8-12 oz and the fruit kept coming all the way to frost. Good tasting firm flesh. Mid season, 75 days.

Seed source:

Reimer Seeds / Commercial Plant 2009

Year grown: 2009

Location: LaFollette, Tennessee, USA



History

  • Breeder and vendor: Burgess Seed and Plant Co., Galesburg, Michigan. Listed in Burgess Catalog. 1937.
  • Parentage: unknown; probably one of more vigorous strains of potato-leaf Ponderosa type, parent plant found in field of Colossal.
  • Most of the growers report larger beefsteak fruit, which should be correct, given the parentage. Vent Marin describes it as potato leaf. SSE members who listed this variety in 2006-2008 Yearbooks did not mention leaf type, but we believe that the 'true' Climbing Trip-L-Crop should be potato leaf (see [1]).
  • Trip-L-Crop tomato listed in the SSE Yearbooks is described as potato leaf.
  • United States Department of Agriculture (USDA), PI 303799. Donated to USDA in 1965.
  • PI 6447419. Donated to USDA in 1961 by Burgess Seed and Plant Company.
  • There is also an RL version of this tomato available via some commercial seed vendors (i.e. CV Treml (Raritätengärtnerei Treml)).
