Slicing Tomato Seeds - Big Momma


Solanum lycopersicum

This tomato is amazing! Large, meaty, with few seeds and the perfect balance of sweetness. Wins the newcomer of the year award! We can't find too much history on this tomato. There seems to be a hybrid tomato called Big Mama out there, but we obtained this seed from the annual Appalachian Seed Swap in Pikeville, KY from a gentleman named Larry Phipps who in turn got the seed from his cousin. What we know for sure is this tomato is delicious and versatile. Large enough to make a good slicing tomato, and meaty enough to make a great sauce.  Indeterminate. 80 days.
