The Ultimate Tomato

The flavor of any tomato is a personal choice indeed. Many say Cherokee Purple is the ultimate tomato while still others say Brandywine tops out all others. Myself I think there is a much overlooked tomato called Pruden's purple! This tomato is an heirloom variety that grows very well under many conditions and is also very trouble free considering it's not a hybrid. Many say it has the flavor of Brandywine but produces much earlier. It's a pink beefsteak tomato that produces fruit weighing up to a pound. Although it's a bit darker than most pink tomatoes, it surely isn't purple in color. Don't hesitate to grow this cultivar for the first time as it will indeed become a favorite tomato in your garden for years to come! Some have even named this tomato early Brandywine, it's that good! I consider it a mid season cropper and in the dead heat of the summer, production will slow down although will resume as temps. drop a bit. Once you try this tomato, like many others, you may just decide to make this the main mid season tomato in your garden year after year. How much better does it get? An heirloom tomato with great old fashion tomato flavor that grows well in most any zone with good production that requires very little care. Pruden's purple could very well be the ultimate tomato for the home garden if the great tomato flavor is to your liking. After growing this tomato last year I can tell you that my garden will never be without at least a half dozen plants :)

Where did you get the seeds, I've never seen it in the catalogs. What about disease resistance? Same as most heirlooms?

This tomato has very good resistance to disease for an heirloom tomato and grows well in many zones. Below is the link where I got my seeds. It's listed under beefsteak tomatoes on their site. Hope you give this variety a try this year. I think you will be well pleased with the results :)

I got my seeds on line from Tomato Growers Supply Co. They are listed under beefsteak tomatoes on their site. Pruden's purple is very easy to grow with good disease resistance in my opinion.
