80 days. Among the rugged people of the Ozark Mountains, rich flavor has made this variety famous for over 50 years. These were used fresh and for canning; they have a delectable, sweet flavor and are a beautiful coral- pink color. In the summer of 1950, Forrester Hutsell, of Mountain Grove, Missouri, gave seed to Ed Henson, of Champion, Missouri, and it was grown in this Ozark hamlet for many years. In 1995, Carol Cleveland, of Norwood, Missouri, sent Millionaire seeds to Neil Gillard, of Ontario, Canada, and he has been preserving it since. He sent us some seed two years ago for trials. After many years and many miles, we can at last offer the seed again in southern Missouri, just 20 miles from Mountain Grove! We have had several requests for this variety from Ozarkians who can remember this variety from the 1950s.

What are the pros? Flavor and size of fruit

What are the cons? Not many fruit on each plant

Review:

My husband's aunt grew millionaire tomatoes in the 1960's and later in Missouri. His Grandma received some seed from her and grew them in Iowa. She gave seed to my sister in Iowa who grew them and then saved more seed and shared with me here in Minnesota. I didn't save seed one year and then was unable to find it anywhere. Baker Creek began carrying it several years ago and I bought some. This tomato is the tastiest we've ever found and fairly easy to grow. The best slicing tomato of any variety, and we have grown almost everything there is over the last 45 years. If you can keep from eating all of them, they are wonderful for canning whole. You won't be disappointed.

What are the pros? interesting slice

What are the cons? big cavity

Review:

I call these the big uglies. They made for great conversation and artistic-looking slices but the meat wasn't substantial. Most of the weight was in the bottom portion, the rest was hollow with seeds. Mine looked far more like accordions than what is pictured above and I've had a hard time getting the shoulders to ripen without the rest of the tomato rotting. I grew two plants and have more than I want. I had to rip one plant out yesterday because it kept producing and producing and spreading everywhere. It's great for a novelty but they just don't have enough substance for my tastes.
