A wonderful heirloom grown by the Spear family of Tennessee since the 1950's and brought to us by a local customer who has been preserving it in his garden. The round fruit weigh 8-10 oz and have the taste of tomatoes from Grandma's garden. They make your mouth water just thinking about them. This rare and historic variety deserves a place in every garden and certainly a place on our table in the future.

What are the pros? Drippingly delicious

What are the cons? Crack a bit

Review:

This is, hands down, the most delicious green tomato I have ever tasted. Juicy, rich taste, firm flesh, cool refreshing translucent color: hot from the sun, cool in a salad, sliced with olive oil and a pinch of salt: perfection. Fruit comes in moderately soon, skin cracks a bit, but really, really fine. Large yield.

What are the pros? sweet tangy easy to peel

What are the cons? tended to fall off when ripe

Review:

Planted in a neglected corner of the garden subjected to shade, compacted soil and nearby tree competition but still produced a good crop albeit kinda small -- look forward to giving Spears TN a more favorable location, and giving away extra plants to friends who've never grown a green-when- ripe

Review:

This has grown well in my Tropical (Thai) climate, even during rainy season. My seedlings are looking healthy and are thriving - so far, so good.

Review:

I'm ordering this tomato for the second time. I thought it was at least as sweet as the Cherokee Purple, maybe even sweeter, and the green/yellow color added a little novelty. I grew so many that I had to pass them along to family and friends -- those same people are now requesting that I plant them again.

Review:

This was the best-tasting tomato we grew in 2010, and our garden included some very popular heirloom tomatoes (Cherokee Purple, among others). Our TN Greens blushed a mustard color on the bottom when ready to slice - the inside was still bright green, juicy but still the right amount of firm flesh for a sandwich or a satisfying crunch. This was a less productive variety than other indeterminates we planted, but it is now late August and the plants are the healthiest in the garden. I'm hoping for a steady supply of these 'til frost.
