|[ Tomato (Solanum lycopersicum 'Moreton Hybrid') | Posted on February 2, 2015 ]
A long time favorite of mine. Nice tomato taste and a good producer. Harris Seeds is the only source I know of for this tomato. It was 'AWOL' for a few years due to losing one of the parents. As the story goes, the developing seed company, Moreton, was sold and the seeds were lost during that sale. A few years later someone who had bought a jar of seeds at the auction (which turned out to be the missing parent) offered them to Harris in exchange for a lifetime supply of fava bean seeds. When the variety was no longer profitable, it was discontinued in 2004. Fast forward to 2009 when Joe Musumeci of Eastern Seed Services orchestrated the reintroduction through a cooperative effort with Eastern Seed Services, Harris Seeds and Rutgers NJAES. Definitely a tomato with an interesting background and story.

While not as early as the name would imply, I always enjoy Early Girl. Not a huge tomato, but a nice size and good flavor. One interesting note, one year I sowed probably 25 or 30 seeds to have plants to sell. I got one that was a potato leaf. Researching the tomato I discovered that Early Girl was developed from a regular leaf and a potato leaf parent. So that gene is still in there and just happened to come out that year for me.

Growing again this year. Good producer with a great cilantro flavor. Haven't found another variety that I like better than Santo.

Am growing again this year. I first grew Mule Team in 2011. Looks great, but tastes even better.
