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

It's been almost ten years since I grew these, and I still remember their flavor. I loved these tomatoes and grew well in central Florida in containers.

What are the pros? produces big tomatoes

What are the cons? poor germination

Review:

I ordered 1 pack of these seeds & 11 other tomato varieties. The other varieties had excellent germination rates, but not the Granny Cantrell. I eventually planted one Granny Cantrell plant. I was very excited about this variety based on the reviews, but it just didn't do well for me. It didn't produce many tomatoes, and they had a weird texture. The flavor was bland and certainly nothing special. My other tomato plants did well.

What are the pros? Appearance of the tomatoes

What are the cons? None

Review:

I had great success with this variety in 2016, my first year trying them. Abundant producers and beautiful fruits as well. Had very little problems with blight, deformities or other negative issues. Taste is excellent. Will become a staple in my garden for sure.

What are the pros? Production, flavor, size,

What are the cons? Length to ripen

Review:

This tomato plant is HIGHLY productive. I live in zone 6 in Ohio and it performed amazingly. I got very high yields of big, sweet, succulent tomatoes all summer. They made for excellent slicers on BLT's and topped on a big juicy burger were heavenly. I grew over 30 different varieties and this by far was my favorite red beefsteak, beating out Brandywine by a long shot. Only wish they ripened a little quicker, waiting to pick them early in the season was torture. I am keeping my fingers crossed that Baker Creek continues to offer this delicious variety.

What are the pros? Perfect tangy tomato flavor!

What are the cons? Nothing.

Review:

Even though I got a bit of a late start with my seeds, they all germinated and have provided a wonderful tomato later in the season for us. They tomatoes are huge, they last well on the vine even the ones touching the ground. The flavor is better than all the other standards we tend to grow. This has been our favorite for our beloved tomato sandwiches this year. Can't recommend them highly enough!
