Polaris is a variety from tomato breeder extraordinaire Karen Olivier of Ladysmith, Canada. Karen specializes in all Potato Leaf varieties and we have to admit that her tomatoes were amongst our favorites this season. Polaris is a purple/red with slight green shoulders. Beefy with deep purple red meat. It produced throughout the season and most were consistantly around 10-12 oz. The slices were firm and meaty. The flavor is a revelation of deep, rich, complex, yet as sweet as they come. Low seed count with more meat than gel. It’s one of those tomatoes that you know you’ll grow again and again. Perfect for salads, and especially BLT’s. Very hardy in our cooler region and disease resistant. See links for other varieties by Karen Olivier.
