Heirloom Tomato – Pittman Valley Plum

This paste-type Heirloom is from Germany.  It produces an abundance of 5-6 inch long, banana shaped fruit with rich flavor, dense flesh and few seeds.  The shape of this tomato is often described as "unusual" due to its elongated, pointy-ended shape.  Plants also have a good resistance to insects and have good keeping qualities.

These produced more of the larger fruit then most other similiar-sized tomatoes in our first year of trials.  The seeds are hard to find but can be purchased here:
