Ruth Smith, who used to garden in Scotland, suspects that the name Ding Wall Scotty may have originated in a town in Scotland off the Cromarty Firth called Dingwall (The name means ‘parliament field’). The town began sometime before AD 800 when Vikings settled there. It is suspected that the tomato seeds may have come from an old Estate greenhouse near there and may have been brought here to America by an immigrant by the name of Ding Wall Scotty. Narrow, upright, heirloom plants producing clusters of 3 to 4, 2-inch, round, red tomatoes with rich flavors and just the right touch of acidity. A wonderful tomato!
