I planted 2 Super Choice this year that I started from seed and although they grew to over seven feet, I found them to be stingy with decent numbers of fruit. Mine also had to be picked quickly at ripening or they would rot quickly on the vine. I saved seeds but probably won't replant next year.

Tasty large tomatoes that ripened mid-season. Tops cracked a bit around the stem but didn't detract from its utility as a tasty tomato for BLTs and general good eating!

Kentucky heirloom, preserved by Hobart Pearson of Berea, Kentucky. He was given seed from an Amish family of Liberty, Kentucky that had been growing it for over 100 years.
