This pre-1830 variety was documented as being grown in Hancock, Mass., by the Shakers in the 1830's. In 1865 Fearing Burr stated, from the time of introduction...the large red was almost the only kind cultivated, or even commonly known." Unique, 12-oz. fruit are deeply fluted and have a sweet, rich tomato flavor. A rare treasure for historic gardeners. Photo by Bill Mordecai of Rogersville, AL

What are the pros? hearty plant with a full canop

What are the cons? 2 to 3 ounce tomatoes

Review:

I expected large tomatoes from the Large Red, but they're ripening at 1 to 3 ounces. I got about 40 of these little tomatoes on the plant right now, and as a result, will have very little in actual weight at the end of the season. I fertilized, adjusted for pH, and never let the plant wilt a single time. It grew to a sturdy 6 feet tall. Big disappointment.

What are the cons?

Review:

grew to the size described, with slight flutes. Good shape for slicing, not too many seeds, and nice low-acid flavor. Plants seemed very durable. Grew vigorously in two locations, one full-sun and one part-sun.
