An old Great Plains heirloom. The “ultimate love apple” according to Amy Goldman’s story in The Heirloom Tomato. Nebraskan brides reportedly still receive these seeds as a wedding gift. Nebraska Wedding introduced in the 1983 SSE Yearbook by Dorothy Beiswenger from Minnesota. Semi-determinate plants (less than 36″) yield an abundant crop of globe-shaped deep-orange weighing up to 12 oz. tomatoes with good sweet/acid balance and lots of flavor.
