TM850A - Pruden's Purple Certified Organic
Vine. This potato-leaf type is exceptionally early for an open-pollinated beefsteak tomato. An heirloom wonder, Pruden's purple is actually more of a distinctive pink. The flattened, slightly ribbed fruits can grow up to 1lb and it has smooth, thin skin that resists cracking. The flesh is firm and meaty with a delicious, rich flavour that is highly rated. Great eaten raw in sandwiches and salads as well as in sauces.

How To Grow
Summer-ripened tomatoes are a good source of vitamin C and beta-carotene. The lycopene in the tomatoes is an anti-oxidant, but is only released when the tomatoes are cooked. They also contain compounds that block cancer-causing nitrosamines. We use the convention of Bush to mean determinate (fruit set more or less all at once on short plants). Vine means indeterminate (fruit sets over a longer time on tall-growing plants). Follow along with this handy How to Grow Tomatoes Guide and grow food.!
