Seeds originally sent to Gary Ibsen in 2006 by Karen Teets of West Virginia who told 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." Well, in January of 2016, Gary received another note from one of Homer Fike's 28 grandchildren, Connie Fint of Aurora, WV, who advised him that her 88-year old mother, Eloise is still growing this tomato and during harvest "always has them lined up on her back porch. Thanks for distributing this seed so lots more gardeners can enjoy my Grandpa's favorite." The abundant amount of distinctively beautiful, yellow-gold, heart-shaped, fruit up to 3 lb. has been one of the greatest tomato pleasures for me. Truly a wonderful gift to place in the hands of a loved one or friend. Guaranteed to get a "WOW!" in response. Meaty flesh, few seeds and delicious fruit-sweet flavors.
