Every seed came up, they're about 3' tall with a sturdy stem. Waiting until mid March to put out in the southern (Ga) garden. Will be licking my lips watching them flower and fruit. I like these as an addition to a traditional red tomato salad.
I had 40 mph winds my greenhouse fell over and was so surprised the seeds survived two days in the cold under soil and are still growing. The roots were in tact so i transplanted them, they are doing just fine. 10 stars

Burpee's Tabletalk is said to have been a single plant selection from Marglobe and released by Burpee in 1941. Listed prominently on many Burpee catalog covers and was reported to be their top variety in 1943. Burpee's Tabletalk has 4-6 oz, deep globe shaped fruit with a solid meaty interior. Very similar to Marglobe with fantastic crack resistance. Was extremely popular for many years especially on the East Coast.
1944 Burpee Seed Catalog said about Burpee Table Talk Tomato.... "A new all-purpose tomato. The fruit, unusual in that it combines a large size with deep globular form, averages 7-8.5 oz. The shoulder is smooth, there is little or no depression at the stem end and the scar is quite small-in other words, it is refined in spite of its size. The color is bright scarlet, uniform and attractive. Slice Burpee's Table Talk and you will marvel at the structure and the firmness of its interior. The plant is short stemmed and bushy, but with no self-topping tendency. The leaves are small and set closely together, dark green, thick and fir in texture, forming a dense mass of foliage which protects the fruit."
California Grown Heirloom Seed Burpee Table Talk was very prolific in our gardens producing many, firm tomatoes just bigger than a golf ball. Some get larger and I want to start selecting those over the next few years to improve the line.
