3425-LG Solanum lycopersicum

(Determinate. 57 days.)

An East Coast original!  Grower Tim Livingstone couldn’t hide his astonishment at Tribe’s Tobique’s performance in 2010.  Tomato seedlings of various types in the unheated field greenhouse awaiting transplant were touched by an unexpected frost.  While most others turned black and...well, we’ve all seen it, Tribe’s only lost 2 plants out of the entire batch.  Talk about selected for cold hardiness!  A delightful tomato made locally famous by Fred Tribe, the Perth-Andover , NB naturalist that found a plant growing wild on the banks of the Tobique River one early July.  Stocky plants, dark green leaves, round red 2” fruits.
