Long Tom

About Long Tom

Old family heirloom originally sent to Ben Quisenberry by a friend living in Pennsylvania. Indeterminate, regular-leaf, vigorous plants produce huge amounts of very long (up to 9 inches), meaty, red paste tomatoes with very few seeds. Their sweet flavor and meaty texture make this an excellent choice as a sauce tomato. Also good as a salad tomato or just for eating fresh off the vine. Tomatoes hardly ever crack. This is a superior paste tomato.
