|Burpee has a new variety of long keeping tomato called 'Red October' that supposedly outlasts the others. A bonus is taste is improved (sometimes long keepers aren't particularly tasty), this one is supposed to hang on to it's great flavor for quite some time without refrigeration. 'Winter Red' is also offered by Burpee which has a richer flavor and deeper color than 'Long Keeper' with the same staying power. Obtain any of these varieties by calling Burpee at 1-800-888-1447 or by visiting the website.
