I bought 4 started plants at a local nursery in the spring of 2007 and they were simply labeled "Indiana Red". I cannot find them listed at any other site nor could I trace them back through the nursery where I bought them as they were purchased from yet another nursery and no information was available.

This appears to be a very early tomato for such a large oxheart type. These are an extremely large red Oxheart type tomato with very "wispy" and drooping regular leaf foliage. Excellent taste with a moderate production. This is a tomato that will remain on my grow list!
