History

  • SSE TOMATO 151, PI 270232.
  • Breeder and vendor: Florida Agric. Expt. Sta. and the Southeastern Breeding Laboratory, USDA, Charleston, South Carolina.
  • Parentage: ((Victor x Dobbies Champion) x Pan America x Rutgers). 1952. Victor is featured in 1951 Burpee Catalog as a 'All-America Winner', and Pan America as 'wilt-resistant'.
  • Gleckler 1958 Catalog description:
"A new wilt resistant tomato developed for the greenwrap production in southern states, especially Florida where it consistently has outyielded the well known Grothens Globe. Very comparable to Rutgers, but having more or less semi-determinate vine growth. Maturing slightly earlier than Rutgers, but larger in fruit size. Red fruits are exceptionally meaty, firm and a most notable absense of internal browning and puffiness. Homestead is a very excellent shipping strain. Home gardeners in Florida also praise it."
