Tatiana Kouchnareva (B.C KO T). Twenty Ounce - sliced fruit. 2015-07-27.


Indet., regular leaf plants with large flower trusses. Red, slightly ruffled fruits are medium in size - we think that '20 oz' name was probably referring to a weight of the whole fruit truss, which is enormous! Very good full tomato flavor. Juicy. 4-6 oz. Early maturity. We received seeds from Seed Savers Exchange , and there was some seed mixup or crossing, as we got a few potato leaf plants in the mix. Selected for a correct regular leaf type.
