TX AN S

75-80 days, compact, indet., potato leaf foliage, 8-12 oz beefsteak, amber exterior, green flesh, excellent taste, high yield. From "Grub" Lockwood of Sydney, Australia 06, "Grub" planted seeds for Paul Robeson from a pkt. Tomato Growers Supply sent to him from a fellow tomato grower in America, 1 plant did not grow past 5' and produced green-when-ripe fruit on a PL vine, seeds saved from this have produced RL and PL variants, but the PL is now, for the most part, stable.

History

  • This variety was 'discovered' in Australia by David Lockwood (a.k.a. "Grub") in his Paul Robeson planting in 2005. The original plant that gave the green-when-ripe fruit was regular leaf, but the next generation growout by Denise Salmon (Vancouver BC) gave potato leaf plants with green-when-ripe fruits.
  • David continued to grow out this tomato and offered seeds to Tomatoville members in the spring of 2006.
  • WARNING: this variety may not be 100% stable yet, and there are several 'strains' in circulation that may vary slightly. Please continue selecting potato leaf plants that produce early fruits.
  • Introduced to SSE by Neil Lockhart of Oblong, Illinois (IL LO N) in 2007.
