From Tatiana's TOMATOBase
- 90+ days, indeterminate, regular leaf plant with moderate to low production of 12-16 ounce bi-color fruit with excellent taste. In my tomato tastings at work Paw Paw has won the last two years in a row (the only years it was entered).
- James "Spud" Raney, who got the seed from a customer of his in Paw Paw (Morgan County) West Virginia. 2006
Year: 2006, 2007, 2008
Location: Martinsburg, West Virginia
- James "Spud" Raney sells tomato seeds through the WV Market Bulletin. Sometimes a customer will send him seeds. Such is the case with Paw Paw. A customer sent 12 seeds, 6 of which Spud gave to Randy Sine. Spud and Randy grew it out and both liked it. In fact, it was good enough that Spud now offers it. When Spud got in contact with the provider of the seeds he was only able to determine that "it is an old German yellow tomato that we've grown around here for over 80 years". While similar, it does not appear to be exactly like Old German or German Yellow.
- First introduced in Seed Savers 2009 Yearbook by Randy Sine of Martinsburg, West Virginia (WV SI R).
