Tatiana Kouchnareva (B.C KO T). Buckbee - ripe fruit. 2013-07-20.


Compact plants with regular leaf produce small red round and smooth fruits. 1-2 oz. Fruits are very meaty which is quite unusual for such small tomatoes. Flavor is very good, with slight acidic bite. Excellent for containers and for short season areas. Early maturing.

Seed source:

Dan and Val McMurray of Wynndel, British Columbia, Canada (B.C MC D) 06

Year grown: 2013

Location: Zone 7b, PNW, Anmore, BC, Canada (760 ft above sea level)


  •  ?
  • It is not clear if it is related to Buckbee's New Fifty Day tomato.
  • [Tatiana's note]: I received the seeds from Dan and Val McMurray of Wynndel, British Columbia, Canada (B.C MC D) in 2006, they were simply labelled 'Buckbee'. I first thought it was Buckbee's New Fifty Day, but the plants and fruit did not match the description of this old Buckbee variety. However, they did much the description that Val provided along with the seeds. Unfortunately I do not know where Val and Dan got their seeds for this tomato, and it is not possible to find out now, as they both passed away.
