MIKADO TOMATO PLANT - 4" POT
If I could only grow one type of tomato, this would be it. Reason number one: it's the most delicious. Also: it is large, juicy, and productive (some fruits weigh over a pound!) with beautiful, luscious "potato" leaves. This indeterminate tomato was first offered in 1886 under the names Mikado and Turner's Hybrid. According to an 1887 advertisement from Rice’s Box of Choice Vegetables, it was bred in Iowa - and was "unequaled in fine flavor" to the point where "old favorites must take a back seat." I agree. Thanks to William Woys Weaver and his Roughwood Seed Collection for introducing me to my true tomato love.
