Seeds set to Gary Ibsen of TomatoFest by Karen Teets of West Virginia who informed him, ” this variety was grown by Mr. Homer Fike for as long as his 78-year old daughter can remember. Beyond that, no one is alive to remember.” Indeterminate, regular leaf plant produces an abundant amount of distinctively beautiful, yellow-gold, heart-shaped, 16 oz., tomatoes with meaty flesh, few seeds and delicious fruit-sweet flavors.
