Product Description

TOMATO: Tomatoes are rich in vitamins and antioxidants, and the seeds are high in fiber. The green parts are mildly poisonous, which is not surprising, as tomatoes are closely related to both nightshade and tobacco. The tomato was originally believed to be poisonous when introduced into Europe, and was used solely as an ornamental plant during the 16th and 17th centuries. The first traces of its use as a food date back to the first half of the 18th century. Tomatoes are now a tasty ingredient in many dishes, and are used fresh, canned, stewed or even sun-dried. Ace 55 Tomato: Ace 55 is an old ,open-pollinated heirloom commercial variety that excels over most others when used fresh. Extremely low in acid. (According to a 1970's era USDA study, this variety was so low in acid that it was determined that this variety should NOT be used for canning by standard hot water method). Strong plants produce an abundance of medium-sized, red oblong 8-12 ounce tomato fruits with a sweet taste and firm flesh. Vines are resistant to Verticilum and Fusarium Wilt.
