  • Seeds were sent to Carolyn Male of Latham, New York by Joe Bratka, NJ in 1996. Later Joe Bratka seem to have changed the name of this tomato to Angora Super Sweet. Although there is no guarantee that this is the same tomato, the main traits are the same (i.e., angora foliage, fruit size/shape).
  • Carolyn Male also noted that the original Velvet Red did not have fuzzy fruits as Angora Super Sweet, so there is a possibility that these two strains evolved differently over time, or were different to start with.
