ID DE M

Crop failure (due to the soil). The plant dwindled and I believe it eventually died (no fruit). The leaves smelled good (kind of like citrus). Caro Rich had similarly smelling leaves (but they smelled even better/stronger).

History

  • Introduced by Burpee in their Seed Catalog in 1937 (see the catalog page at Craig LeHoullier's website). The description from the catalog says:
    • "A distinctive new Tomato - the color of Tangerine. This new main-crop Tomato is as outstanding in quality as it is in appearance. The fruits are large and heavy, measuring 4 in and more in diameter. They are as deep as they are high and inclined to be somewhat angular. The thin skin of the ripened fruit is a beautiful orange - the color of a fully ripened tangerine. The flesh is a lighter orange shade, somewhat more of a mellow golden yellow, which gives it a most appetizing appearance."
