Targinnie Red

About Targinnie Red

An old heirloom. It is known that the Targinnie Red variety came to the United States from Australia, but it may have originated in New Zealand. One possible explanation as to why Australian types are hard to trace and pin down is that the Yates Seeds Limited of Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane, and Perth in Australia are associated with allied firms in Tasmania and New Zealand. Seeds donated to the USDA in 1954.
Introduced commercially by Tatiana’s TOMATObase Seeds in 2016. Indeterminate, regular leaf plants produce lots of 2-3 oz., small, bright-red, fruits with three lobes and empty seed locules. This is a great stuffer tomato with excellent tomato flavor, which is unusual for a stuffer tomato.
