A respected commercial heirloom from before 1930 that was introduced by H.W. Buckbee. Their 1930 catalog states, “The largest fruited, the smoothest, the finest in quality of all early scarlet tomatoes.” Donated to USDA in 1962 then Craig LeHoullier obtained seeds from the National Seed Storage Lab around 1995. Good yields of great tasting 4-6 oz., red, round fruit. A great cooler, short season variety.
