Tomato Tuesday- Prue

This weeks Tomato Tuesday spotlight is on Prue. This was another good paste/plum tomato I grew last year. Early in the season the plant looked sickly because of it's extremely wispy leaves, but as the season progressed it produced really nice tomatoes for me up until the first frost. Here is some info from Tatiana's site about it.

Indet. plants with regular wispy foliage, which is sparse and droopy. Fruits are large elongated red plums, some with a nipple at the bottom, some without, variable shapes, but mostly a variation of plum shape. 4-12 oz. Delicious rich flavor, juicy flesh, very few seeds. Originated from Tom Gallucci of Connecticut, seeds came from Tom's ex-wife's grandfather, Mr. Prue of Massachusetts, who was born around 1900 and had been growing this tomato in the 1940s or earlier. Original source is unknown.




Thanks for taking a look at my Tomato Tuesday post!
Stop by next week to see which tomato variety I will be spotlighting from my 2014 garden.
