About Elmer’s Old German

‘Elmer’s Old German’ is an old heirloom tomato from Germany. TomatoFest organic heirloom tomato seeds produce very large, indeterminate, regular-leaf tomato plants that yield 1-2 pound (and more), deep-pink, heart-shaped tomatoes that have delicious, bold, sweet/acid tomato flavors with very few seeds. An excellent slicer for eating fresh in salads and sandwiches. Rare tomato seeds. A Gary Ibsen “personal favorite”.
