About Jerusalem

Original seeds are from Roberta Helpman, Ontario, Canada, who got it from someone traveling to Israel. This variety has been listed in the SSE Yearbooks since 1997, but since then not many have re-listed it. Jerusalem was first listed by Bill Minkey who describes it as bell shaped, almost heart shaped, large red fruits. Seeds sent to Victory Seed Company by Sammie Long of Tennessee. Indeterminate, regular leaf plant produces very good yields of 12-16 oz., large, red heart-shaped fruits with delicious, complex sweet flavors and a mild acidic finish.
