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
1966 Burrell's Seed Catalog says about Pearson's Improved Tomato... "A popular California sort though used extensively for shipping also. Main crop in season; plants determinate with ample foliage for proper fruit protection. Fruits medium to large, semi-globe and of good red color. Skin very tough. Our experience with this sort leads us to believe it is one of the heaviest yielders yet introduced. for this reason and because of its large, sold fruit is has become the favorite shipping sort in the Rocky Ford District. this is a special item with us and our stock doesn't take a back seat for any we have tried."
