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.
