Detailed Product Info

When Stone Ridge New York Hort Hunk Larry Fuscher donated tomato seeds to the Seed Library, we didn't know what we were in for. We grew out 100 plants to trial his family heirloom and found a wide range of tomato shapes, sizes, and coloring. Little did we know that when we asked for a written description of the tomato we would blush. "Mine have a rich, bulbous, deeply creased full bodied sensuosity," wrote Larry in the G-rated part of his email. "May her sexy hips live long and flurish." It's impossible to deny the salaciousness of tomatoes, especially these ample bottomed ones. Larry, and we, are particlular about keeping these tomatoes sexy, so if you find any that are, in his words, "pathetically acuminated" please don't save seed from those. Rather, help us preserve the fecundity of these fruits by selecting the wider, rounder, and more deeply lobed Stone Ridges, otherwise, you might be hearing from Larry.
