History

  • 'Discovered' by Earl Cadenhead, Ohio, in the early 2000s, who received the seed in a seed trade as 'Red Brandywine' and was surprised to see potato leaf plants, as Red Brandywine should have regular foliage. Earl found the taste to be truly outstanding, and he distributed the seeds among the members of Garden Web and Tomatoville. This variety has been popular among hobby tomato growers since then, and it has now become commercially available (Tomato Growers Supply ).
  • First offered in the Seed Savers 2005 Yearbook by OH RI M2 (Mark Richardson of Loveland, Ohio) and OH ST S, seeds from Earl Cadenhead, Ohio.
