History

  • Jack Maderis's family heirloom from North Carolina.
  • First introduced in Seed Savers 2008 Yearbook by Amy Goldman of Rhinebeck, New York. Amy obtained the seed from local artist and seed collector John Coykendall, while she visited the Blackberry Farm in the Smoky Mountains of East Tennessee. John got tomato plants from Jack Maderis in 1986, and he has been saving seeds since then.
  • Some SSE members who obtained the seed from Amy Goldman in 2008 reported some percentage of the plants being regular leaf.
