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

Santa Clara Canner Tomato Seed
Santa Clara Canner Tomato Seed (84 days)
Sustainably Grown/Approx. 25 seeds per pkg.
Believed to have originated in Italy, it was one the first tomatoes launching the canning industry in California. It was named by F.A. Dixon on behalf of the Canners League of California in 1926. (See the scanned catalog page from Morse's 1930 seed catalog)
High yielding as you would expect from an industry canner tomato. A beefsteak in shape producing fruit from 2"-4" wide and around 13 ounces in weight. The flavor is well balanced and rich. Excellent in saute's or canning. Many folks eat Santa Clara Canner fresh as well, its so darn good.
Santa Clara Canner is famed for making a creamy, intense tomato sauce unlike other canning tomatoes.
California Grown Heirloom Seed What can you say? This tomato has been selected for performance here in California since 1923. This is a premier canning tomato for Californians. It of course did well in our gardens here, not as heavy in production as Romalina or Opalka. Just remember it is a late producer and plan for canning accordingly.
