This meaty beefsteak-type tomato is named after Lettie Cantrell, who received seeds from a soldier returning from Germany during World War II. She grew this tomato in the hills of eastern Kentucky for many years. This was her favorite tomato and the only one she grew. Each year she saved seeds from the largest tomatoes, some of which reached 2 1/2 lbs. Our growers find it to be quite productive. Ahh! What a flavor! This variety was named best tasting tomato of the year at the 2006 Heirloom Garden Show in our taste testing contest. Image provided by www.abundantacres.net

Review:

This is the best tomato I've ever tried. The flavor surpasses any of the many varieties I've experimented with. It does ripen s-l-o-w-l-y but it is worth the wait. Try this tomato for the amazing flavor and for it's great history. Plant it in honor of a WWII vet!

Review:

These tomatoes were AWESOME! They are the biggest fruits I've ever grown. Everyone who saw them and ate them was blown away. The biggest one I weighed was 1 lb 12 oz. They only held up to Georgia weather and pests until mid July, but by that time, I was pretty tomatoed out, so that was fine. Buy these seeds!

Review:

These were beautiful, tasty tomatoes. The ribbed appearance is different and lovely. These took a while to get started, but once they did were VERY prolific with a lot of big fruits. The plants were very vigorous and healthy. We had a wet spring and a dry summer, but the plants were forgiving of both. They are LARGE plants. The ones that I gave to my parents towered at 6 feet tall. I made the mistake of not staking my cages and the plants yanked them right down. Beginner's mistake. I already have people asking if I will have more of these next year. I also made sauce with a mixture of these, Martino's Romas, and Black Vernissage. Delicious!!

Review:

This was my 2nd year growing tomatoes. I got the Baker Creek Catalog and I couldn't decide which tomato I wanted to try. So I ordered 5 varieties. Cherokee purple, Mortgage lifter, Black from Tula, Pink Berkeley tie dye, and Granny Cantrell. I liked all these varieties but they just didn't produce as well as the granny. Also had a problem with the Cherokee splitting. Granny produced all summer and never slowed down. Also they were big and delicious and never had any splitting. I ate more BLTs and tomato sandwiches in one summer than ever in my whole life. I like this tomato so much I'm seriously considering making it the only tomato that I grow.
