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

Organic Boxcar Willie Tomato
Organic Boxcar Willie Tomato (80 days)
25 heirloom tomato seeds per pkg
A tomato named for the famed Grand Ole Opry singer Boxcar Willie.
The flesh is rich, sweet and well balanced.
Uniform shape and color.
Very good producer.
Excellent for fresh eating, canning, juice or sauce.
Each year we do employee tomato taste test. This was the 2012 favorite of all 146 types we grew!
***As with many heirloom tomatoes there can be different strains or variations of seed lines. This seems to be the case with Boxcar Willie. Our line is not the large beefsteak looking line, but rather a smaller (non-beefsteak type) more productive and better tasting line.
