About Carol Chyko’s Big Paste

Family heirloom from Carol Chyko’s family in Hazleton, PA. Seeds first introduced by Bill Ellis in 1988. Very large 1-3 lbs., blunt, heart-shaped, crimson red, meaty tomato with delicious flavors and very few seeds. Too much juice to really be considered a paste tomato. Better for slicing into sandwiches than a sauce tomato, though because of the good flavors and the big crops still a candidate for making wonderful sauces. WINNER of large tomato contests. Rare.
