Introduced by Dr. James Baggett at Oregon State University. Short, bushy, determinate, regular-leaf tomato plants that yield early-bearing, 14 to 16-ounce, 3 to 4-inch, smooth, round, blemish-free, red tomatoes that have wonderful, delicious sweet flavors that are balanced well with just the right amount of acidity to invite praise. Fruit has very few seeds. Legend generally sets fruit earlier than Oregon Spring and Siletz, and sets fairly fruit well even under the cooler growing conditions of the Pacific Northwest. This tomato was also bred to be resistant to late blight fungus. A great salad tomato and canning tomato.
