Heirloom tomato. In 1870, Colonel George E Waring, of Newport, Rhode Island, sold these seeds at the enormous price of $5.00 per packet. Many purchased these seeds in pursuit of the $100.00 reward for the largest specimen tomato. At that time, nearly every seed company in America was carrying the Trophy variety as the first smooth, round tomatoes in clusters of 4-5. Large, indeterminate, regular-leaf tomato plants yield 6 to 8-ounce, round, red tomatoes with mild, sweet flavors. A good slicer for tomato salads, canning and culinary dishes. Rare tomato seeds.
