History

  • An heirloom tomato named by Gary Ibsen of TomatoFest in 2001 after Julia Child, a well-known "French Chef," educator, and world-renowned cook.
  • Here is what Gary says about the tomato:
...From some of the seeds sent to me over the years, tucked into letters from gardeners wanting to share their legacy, I grew a small number of plants for trial. Eventually they were to be named. In 2001 I planted four of my favorite un-named varieties and of these I selected the best-tasting tomato variety and named it "Julia Child."'
