About Turkey

From Turkey. First offered in the Seed Savers 1998 Yearbook by Seed Savers Heritage Farm, Decorah, Iowa.
Seeds for this variety were initially donated by a Seed Savers Exchange (SSE) member, Wade Wofford of California who died in 2006, to the SSE’s Heritage Farm some time between 1988 and 1998. Wade obtained the variety through a chain of seed-passing involving members. Wade noted that “A son of the family [through which the seeds were distributed in US] was traveling in Turkey and ordered a tomato slice on a sandwich in a restaurant. The slice overflowed the bread, so he saved out some seeds in a handkerchief and mailed that to his father in the USA (who loved big tomatoes).” Commercially introduced by Two Seeds in a Pod. This variety is rare because of its potato leaves, which is unusual with Turkish varieties. Indeterminate, potato leaf plant produces 8-16 oz., large, pink, juicy, beefsteak tomatoes with excellent, sweet, robust, tomatoey flavors.
