Over 120 YEARS later, still considered by many to be the 'go to' canning tomato. Bright scarlet fruits are smooth, round and almost completely blemish-free. Meaty, coreless, with small seed cavities and good flavor. Fruits average around 8 ounces; just on the cusp of categorizing them with the beefsteaks. Strong plants are not unruly staying under 5 ft.; Good disease resistance. Performs very well in cooler climates.


HISTORY: Developed by George W. Middleton of Jeffersonville, Pennsylvania from a plant selected in a field of 'Chalk's Early Jewel' in the early 1900s. First commercially introduced in 1908 by Stokes' Seeds, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. Also known as 'John Baer'.
