Large, 5-7”, red elongated fruits shaped like… well, you know! Excellent, well-balanced flavor that sweetens as it matures. While technically classified as a paste variety, Cow's Tit is what I refer to as a cross-over as it is excellent for both fresh use and processing.

 

Production is stingy in the early summer then sky-rockets late summer - early fall. Fruits keep well after picking, too. This is one of the best paste tomatoes available for drying as the depth of flavor deepens dramatically when slow roasted in the oven.


HISTORY: Original single plant was found in a Valle Crucis, North Carolina grower’s field associated with the Mast Farm Inn in summer of 1994 by Keith Mueller. Plant was an off type that stood out in size and foliage color from a distance compared to neighboring plantings. Planted among ‘Mountain Pride’ and ‘Better Boys’ but it was not clear which may have been the parent. Keith consulted the transplant grower for the farm and he said that he had planted no varieties like that and commented "it looks like a cow's tit".

 

Sold in a 3.5" pot.
