Thorburn's Terra-Cotta Tomato

Incredible flavor, color and history! Introduced in 1893 by James Thorburn of New York, this is one of the most sensational tomatoes we have ever grown. With honey-brown skin, orange-pink flesh, and green seed mass, this is an eye-catching slicer with an out-of-this-world flavor. The tomato produces heavily during mid-season and then drops off quickly once cool weather sets in. As a cooker it will yield a pumpkin-orange sauce with a floral aroma. We are excited to have this tomato that was painted in color in Thorburn's 1893 catalog. At last, we can offer this rare treasure! Very limited seeds this year. From the collection of Dr. William Woys Weaver. A percentage of each sale goes to support Dr. Weavers work.

What are the pros? Early and tasty!

What are the cons? none

Review:

This tomato was a pleasant surprise. It was the earliest of the 10 different varieties I planted. And the taste is absolutely wonderful - rich and complex. The photo does not do it justice - the skin color was more a rich orange than brown. Not a super duper producer, but it held its own. I recommend you give it a try.

What are the pros? Flavor

What are the cons? Thick skins & blossom end rot

Review:

Okay. This tomato needs some work. I'm going to try saving seeds to see if next year they adapt better to my climate. I had a lot of problems with thick skins and blossom end rot, but the flavor on this tomato is just unbelievable. It just takes over your taste buds like an army of savory fireworks. The color when cooked is simply stunning. It looks like pumpkin, but tastes like a tomato you only ever once dreamed of. Will keep growing this one until I get it right.

Beautiful Producer

What are the pros? Serious producer, thick flesh

What are the cons? Bruises easily

Review:

This tomato is my surprise this season. I added two plants to my garden and am thrilled at the number of beautiful tomatoes coming in! It's in the upper 90s and the plant shows no signs of slowing down. I have dehydrated one full batch in an 11 rack dehydrator and am making sauce now. Great flavor, but you have to use them quickly as the bruise easily and deteriorate quickly. I will be growing these again!
