History

  • Origin is unknown, but, according to Amy Goldman's research, Morrison (1938) believed that "it probably came from Italy and was modified by the growers in the Santa Clara Valley". This tomato was very productive and well adapted to California region but produced crops too late in the season. In 1923, Morse and company undertook a breeding program for the Canners League of California, and within three years produced smoother and earlier Santa Clara Canner strain.
  • Dates back to at least the late 1910s.
  • NSL 34243
