This popular "potato-leaf" variety originated in the southern United States, and was one of the four parent lines of the famous Mortgage Lifter Tomato, a 1930's introduction. German Johnson Tomato produces large, meaty fruit with pink flesh and bright red skin streaked yellow at the top. The flavorful fruits are excellent for slicing and canning and the plants are very productive with good disease resistance.
Sow seeds indoors 4-6 weeks before last frost date, transplant to 3" pots once they have several true leaves, then transplant outdoors after all danger of frost has passed. Plants require support and frequent fertilization. Approximately 35-40 seeds per packet.
