History * A family heirloom that originally came f * A family heirloom that originally came from Italy. * The seeds originally came to Tracy Mathesius of Illinois via Maureen Key-Del Duca of Colorado from Kathy Carella in Ontario, Canada. Kathy's father George Detsikas had saved seeds from these tomatoes each year for decades. This seed was from the last batch that her father grew in 2013, as he passed away over the winter. George was originally given the seeds over 25 years ago by an old Italian man who had brought the seeds from Italy. The family always referred to them simply as "George's Tomatoes". The family described them as "giant beautiful sweet dark red tomatoes". * Tracy Mathesius grew out 3 plants in isolation in 2014, and shared the seed with many tomato gardeners via Tomatoville gardening forum. gardeners via Tomatoville gardening forum.
