About Tennessee Surprise

Found by Tennessee road crew workers in the garden of an elderly lady, who had grown it as long as she could remember. Our TomatoFest organic tomato seeds produce indeterminate, regular-leaf tomato plants that yield moderate to heavy crops of 12-16 oz., orange-yellow beefsteak tomatoes with very subtle red blushing/striping. Slightly pleated fruit contains excellent sweet, well-balanced, old-time tomato flavors. A good sandwich and salad tomato. Rare tomato seeds.
