Gardeners' Notes:

Negative bicrouch On Nov 13, 2010, bicrouch from Cassville, MO (Zone 6b) wrote:

Received a free packet from Jung seed. Poor germination. I tried three different times last spring. About 20% came up. I planted the few that made it out of the greenhouse and the plants were small. Early fruit, but not very big or very plentiful. At least the packet was free!

Looks like there are at least two distinct varieties sharing the name 'Wayahead'.

75 days, indeterminate

Several old seed companies sold tomato varieties with this name. I believe that this is the variety, also known as 'Hudson Valley' or 'Potato-leaved Earliana' Smooth, tasty, small (two to eight ounce) red fruit.
