Large, high crimson fruits are meaty with few seeds.  While they have good acid, they are sweet, too. They are exetremely fragrant when sliced (this is always my first clue of a great tasting tomato is about to be experienced). An ideal candidate for making deep red colored sauce, as opposed to that Campbell's condensed orangey colored stuff.

 

Plants are very productive and seemingly disease resistant and drought tolerant.


HISTORY: During the summer of 2015 Marty Leonard brought with him to Tomato Fest seeds for a variety that he called 'Old European Roma' (because of the meatiness, he said) that he had been growing for the last 28 years. He obtained the original seed from a female co-worker who worked with him at HAP Health Insurance, in downtown Detroit, in either 1986 or '87. The co-worker actually lived in Ontario, Canada and commuted to Detroit. As Marty recalls, she obtained seed from her uncle who was either Polish or Czech.

Michigan Heirlooms went SOLAR!

 

I had been wanting to utilize some alternative energy source for years. One day, I saw an ad on Facebook sponsored by PowerHome Solar & Roofing and I clicked on it. I couldn't have imagined where that simple click was going to take me.

Zero out of pocket expense.

91% of the entire properties electrical use manufactured right in my backyard.

Not every home qualifies, but if you are even slightly interested in learning if your home does, please click the link below which will redirect you to a new page and have the best salesman I have ever met give you a call. His name is James Johns and you have my word that he is ethical, honest and sincere.

Yes, I will get a referral bonus if you end up purchasing. But guess what? SO WILL YOU!

      ALL PLANTS ARE 100% ORGANIC - GUARANTEED!
