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: http://store.tomatofest.com/Pittman_Valley_Plum_p/tf-0393.htm
