History * A very old commercial variety, originate * A very old commercial variety, originated in Burlington County, New Jersey and released by W. Atlee Burpee sometime before 1899. * Description from 1899 Burpee Seed Catalog: : ''"The best of all main-crop purple-colored tomatoes. It originated in Burlington County, N.J. : ''"It is one of the largest tomatoes grown, and is most regular in shape and size. Color purplish-red, very solid, firm flesh, a good keeper, and not subject to rot or crack on the vines. It is an excellent shipper, and sold in Philadelphia markets at better prices than any other variety offered at the same time. Ripens evenly to the stem, is a strong, healthy grower, not subject to rust or blight, is an enormous cropper, and produces until the vines are killed by frost, holding its size exceedingly well until the last picking. The quality is of the very best, and for cooking and slicing purpose it cannot be excelled. It is in every way a most desirable variety for market gardeners, and hence the name, 'Trucker's Favorite'.
