About Tidwell German

Dates to 1920s. Family heirloom from David Pendergrass of Tennessee whose family has grown this variety since at least the 1920’s. Introduced in Seed Savers 2004 Yearbook by Carolyn Male. Big, regular-leaf plant produces prolific sets of 1-3 lb., pink, very meaty beefsteak fruits, with wonderful sweet flavors and lots of the kind of huge tomatoey flavors that we tomato lovers go crazy for. A winner for your garden!
