An AAS Winner! If you like Celebrity Tomato, you'll love Mountain Merit! (VF,F,N,TSWV,LB) We think this tomato matches all the fine qualities of the popular Celebrity tomato with some notable improvements. The 3" to 3.5" round, beefsteak-type fruits are larger, weighing in at 10 to 12 ounces each. They have deep red color inside and out with smooth, crack-resistant skin and barely noticeable blossom end scars. A mild, true tomato flavor along with a firm texture that holds them together makes them perfect for slicing and sandwiches. The determinate, compact plants offer superb resistance to multiple diseases common to home grown tomatoes, including resistance to fusarium 123, verticillum, TSWV and late blight. Plants grow 4 to 5 feet tall and yield a prolific supply of tomatoes in a 4 to 5 week harvest window. Harvest first fruits about 75 days after transplanting.
