Pruden's Purple Heirloom tomato is a wonderful, larger slicing tomato. With a half pound average, these will top the scales at a pound. Will ripen in northern areas. The Prudens' Purple is an indeterminate, meaning you can pick over a longer period of time. This variety is all Heirloom, beyond organic, Non-GMO, and unchanged. You can only get this kind of old time tomato flavor when you buy Heirloom tomato seeds online. Happy growing!!!
