‘Daniel Burson’ is a beautiful, purple fruited variety, that was developed from an accidental cross found by Mr. Bill Jeffers in his garden in Evansville, Indiana, USA.
Mr. Jeffers saved seeds from ‘Indian Stripe’ tomato and they grew out different. He traced the cross back to ‘Daniels’ with the ‘Indian Stripe’. Selected for the purple fruit on potato leaf vines to stability. The plant is indeterminate, vigorous, with very good production of very beautiful, medium to large (8-12 oz.) dark purple fruit with slightly green shoulders, that turn purple when fully ripe. Very meaty, dense, firm flesh and excellent flavor. Keeps well after picking. Midseason, about 80 days from transplant.
