About Linda’s Faux

Linda’s Faux AKA Aker’s West Virginia, Potato Leaf. Ted Corbett of German, got the seed from Linda Anderson of Mantua, Utah at Dave’s Garden. Linda got Aker’s West Virginia seeds from Sand Hill Preservation Center in 2007 and upon grow out of 20 plants 3 were potato leaf plants. Linda kept one potato leaf plant and grew it alongside the regular leaf plants. She noticed the fruit were the same as the regular leaf fruit but larger, and production was double that of the regular leaf plants. She saved seed from the potato leaf and grew again the following year with the same results and that is where Ted’s seed came from. Ted saved seed from potato leaf plants and grew it in 2010. First offered commercially by Gleckler Seedmen in 2011. Indeterminate, potato leaf plant produces 8-16 oz., round, red, beefsteak tomatoes with deliciously sweet, rich flavors. Excellent for using fresh in salads on in a sandwich, as the slices are very meaty and do not fall apart.
