Box Car Willie

These are 8-16 oz fruit are full of good "old fashioned tomato" flavor- rich, sweet and well balanced. They are great for fresh eating, canning or cooking. It's very productive even late into the season on vigorous plants. Fruit rarely crack. A very nice heirloom tomato.


Could be named for Box Car Willie, a singer with the Grand Ole Opry whose real name is Lecil Travis Martin.

From Tatiana’s TOMATObase:

Bred by Joe Bratka's father. Joe found the seeds for this tomato and several others (Red Barn, Mule Team, and Great Divide) in a toolshed, could not get the seeds to germinate, and sent them to Carolyn Male, who succeeded in germinating the seed and shared this variety with other gardeners and SSE members in the mid-1990s.
