Granny Cantrell German Red Tomato

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

What are the pros? Tasty

What are the cons? Heavy plant

Review:

This was my first tomato to ripen and it looks more like a pink tomato than a red tomato. Smooth texture, good classic tomato flavor. These plants are huge and unfortunately heavy, they grew over their 6 ft cages and fell down and snapped off several branches. There are still plenty of tomatoes set, but I was disappointed to lose those branches. Otherwise, a great fresh eating slicer that can probably be added to sauces and salsas!

What are the pros? Starts out great.

What are the cons? Not a robust plant in my area.

Review:

I placed five plants. Three in one raised bed. One in another raised bed, and one in enriched garden soil. After about two months from germination, the lower leaves yellowed and later the tops began to droop. I pulled the plants after that. All of the other varieties I planted (In the same locations) are hanging in there.

We grew several large tomatoes last year. Granny Cantrell, Pink Brandywine and Large Barred Boar. The Granny Cantrell did not have flavor compared to the other two.

Review:

I have grown this tomato for the past several years and find it impossible to beat, such a great flavor and they work well for canning and mixing with paste tomatoes for making sauce for extra flavor. Love these. This year will try in a dutch bucket hydro experiment to see how well they do.
