Stone Ridge Tomato
Use for fresh eating, roasting, or saucing.
Larry Fuchser of Stone Ridge, New York, gave us the original seeds of this variety, along with this memorable description: “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 flourish.” If you find any that are, in his words, “pathetically acuminated,” please don't save seed from those. Rather, help us keep Stone Ridge curvaceous by selecting the wider, rounder, and more deeply lobed fruit.
