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
Unlike many orange tomatoes the Earl of Edgecomb has a distinct, robust flavor with very few seeds. (Bad for me. I have to collect lots to get the tiniest amount of seed!) This tomato is meaty, juicy, tart, sweet and rarely cracks. The fruit is borne in clusters of 3 to 5 tomatoes and weight up to 10 ounces. The yield is excellent.
California Grown Heirloom Seeds The Earl of Edgecomb did exceedingly well here. In fact it was still producing just fine when the first frost made it here. That is saying something because production started back in June!
