This is the beautiful sister tomato to Rosedale. Created by breeder Bill Jeffers of Evansville, Indiana. Most of you know how much we’ve raved about Rosedale but now it’s time to talk about the next great tomato. She is the Regular Leaf sister to Rosedale. We didn’t think it was possible to love this one as much but it might have a slight edge. They are the favorite for 2021. Having Cherokee Purple in the heritage explains why this one is un-forgettable. They grow on a compact, bush habit and are big producers. Hard to believe a smaller plant like this can pump out so many and all a good size.
Picture perfect. They have a dusky rose exterior and when you slice into them it exposes bright, maroon flesh. We honestly had to grow extra plants so we could eat as many as possible. Very crack resistant. Most average about 1/2 lb. Rosebud and her sister Rosedale are holding 2 spots on our top 10 favorites.
Mr. Jeffers also gave us the honor of naming this one and we felt very privileged to do so. A must grow!! This will be a future favorite of anyone that grows it.
