About Double Rich

AKA Doublerich. Developed in 1953 by A. Yeager at the University of North Dakota and University of New Hampshire by crossing “Lycopersicon Peruvianum” and “Michigan State Forcing.” Double Rich is noted for containing twice the amount of vitamin C as other tomato varieties. Bushy, indeterminate plants with good foliage cover produce plentiful amounts of 4 oz., red tomatoes with delicious tart flavors.Description from 1958 Gleckler Seed Catalog says:
“(High-vitamin Tomato). This new tomato contains twice the vitamins content found in ordinary commercial varieties. The canned product of this tomato is also high in vitamin C. In a recent test, canned tomato juice from Doublerich had 55 milligrams of ascorbic acid six months later. Smooth, deep globular fruits average about 2 1/2 inches in diameter, ripening from a light green, even ripening characteristic to bright scarlet. Unusually firm fruit with high resistance to cracking and long keeping after ripe. Flavor is very mild and delicious. Maturity is mid-season. Moderate size, determinate vines somewhat open, but fruits resist sunburn very well.”
