Extradordinaryily thick-stemmed, large and robust plants produce potentially softball-sized pink fruits that are slightly ribbed from stem to blossom end.

 

Mild flavored fruits are very meaty, with balanced juice ratio and of great flavor. Plants produce mid-season, but really come into their own later in the season. Every year I am amazed when I am in the garden cleaning up for the winter, and this plant is still loaded with beautiful unblemished fruits. 

 

HISTORY: In the spring of 2010, I received two plants from a gentleman who owns a vineyard in Edward, Illinois, called Kickapoo Creek Winery. He was given four plants from one of his seasonal workers, who spoke very little English, only saying that her family back in Germany had been growing them for years. I feel fortunate to have received them as they are an excellent example of why heirlooms are so important for so many reasons. Since I know no other history, I've decided to call this tomato 'Kickapoo Creek'.

 

Sold in a 3.5" pot.
