About Tennessee Suited

‘Tennessee Suited’ was developed by the members of the ‘Dwarf Tomato Project’, from a cross made in 2009 by Patrina Nuske Small between ‘Pink Berkeley Tie Dye’ and ‘Rosella Purple’ and named ‘Tidy’. Selected and named by Ted Maiden. The stabilization work was made by Patrina Nuske Small, Craig LeHoullier, Ted Maiden, Bill Yoder, Sue Bailey, Doug Frank, and Bill Minkey. ‘Tennessee Suited’ was released in 2015 as the F9 generation. Indeterminate and vigorous dwarf-type plants with regular and rugose leaf foliage. Very beautiful, medium to large-sized (4-12 oz.), round and oblate, purple-black beefsteak-type tomatoes with dark green stripes. Excellent tomato taste, good balanced, rich flavor. Midseason, about 75 days from transplant.
This variety is associated with the ‘Open Source Seed Initiative’ (OSSI), which means, that: ‘You have the freedom to use these OSSI seeds in any way you choose. In return, you pledge not to restrict others’ use of these seeds or their derivatives by patents, or other means, and to include this pledge with any transfer of these seeds or their derivatives’*.
*The ‘Tennessee Suited’ seed packets that are share or sell should include this information (‘OSSI Pledge’).
