The Dutchman

With a name like this, I knew I had to grow it. It kind of belongs in this area. It is not a very commonly grown heirloom so I really like being part of saving this one from extinction. The lovely pink ribbed fruits are large, 12 – 16 oz, and have a sweet, meaty flesh. Excellent flavor. I guess this Dutchman knew what he was doing when he continued to grow this one!


An old family heirloom, introduced by the legendary Merlin W. Gleckler of Glecklers Seedmen in 1958. Gleckler 1958 Catalog description: "Here is an extremely old, large fruited pink-skinned tomato. While not classified as new, it is practically extinct as far as securing seed. In fact, it is doubtful if seed has ever been sold by any seedmen. Only by handing down by generations of one family has this tomato existed. Huge pink-skinned fruits; very meaty red flesh; weight up to 3 pounds and more. Flavor is very sweet and without any acid. Large dense indeterminate vines with healthy foliage. Maturity, mid-season to late."
