About Long Keeper

Long Keeper (AKA Burpee’s Long Keeper) was introduced by Burpee in 1979. A perfect tomato variety for winter storage. This heirloom is best planted in early summer for late harvest. Hearty plant produces huge amounts of 6 oz., round fruits. Popular for it’s good taste and long storage ability. Because of slow-ripening qualities fruits become ripe 1-3 months after harvesting. If picked in late fall, after fruit reaches a pale pink blush, unblemished fruit that is stored without touching, at around 65 degrees, can last for 4 months. Light orange-red color when ripe, with pink flesh.
