This early-season variety, deep red inside and out, has a quaint folk name also given to red Corn and red Trillium. The plants begin producing clusters of 2in, 4oz fruits in only eight weeks, a bonanza for cold-climate gardeners and those eager to taste a fresh Tomato. Enjoy the rich flavor picked from the vine and can or freeze the surplus. Indeterminate, 55 days from transplant.
Some Tomato varieties are known as "Potato Leaf." All this means is that their leaves look more like those of Potatoes (with few or no notches on the leaf edges). The leaves are thicker as well, which may help resist disease. The 'Bloody Butcher' we offer is a Potato Leaf variety. For information on growing Tomatoes, click on "Growing Guide & Tips".
