Ace 55 Tomato Seeds
Ace 55 (75 days)
Ace is a vigorous med-large determinate tomato plant that produces red, thick-walled tomatoes. Fruits are 5-6" in diameter and weigh about 7 oz. Ace 55 tomato was bred for the market so it resists cracking, bruising and bursting. A perfect farmer's market tomato.
A nice tomato for those who don't like the acidic taste of tomatoes like myself. I still get that sweet tomato taste without the acidic flavor. This, however, makes Ace 55 a poor choice for canning. If you can this tomato you will need to pressure cook it due to the low acid content.
Ace 55 tomato is resistant to Fusarium Wilt, Verticillium Wilt, and Alternaria Stem Canker.
1967 Burrells Seed Grower catalog says about "Ace 55"...
Developed by Campbell Soup Co. Large red fruit, the semi-globe medium firm with thick walls and very good interior color; uniform ripening. Vine medium-large and very productive. Low in acid and may be eaten by many persons who cannot use ordinary sorts. Adapted for Western areas and should not be used in other sections without trial."
Started seeds indoors three weeks ago and got about a 99% germination rate. I will have to thin out because I didn't expect such high success and planted about 4 to 5 seeds per container. Seedlings look strong and healthy.
