70 days, Determinate - The regular leaf plants of 'Allred' are compact but quite productive. Its fruit, as its name implies, are red in color, globe to oblate in shape, and earlier maturing. They are juicy, weigh 3 to 10 ounces each, and have a mild, well balanced flavor. An excellent processing tomato adapted for Southern Canada to the Northern United States.

'Allred', originally known as 'N.D. 216-23', was introduced by the North Dakota Agricultural Experiment Station, Fargo, in 1937.[1] It is similar to 'Bison' in plant growth habit and fruit appearance, except that it has uniform fruit color without green stem spot. It is also reportedly heat resistant.[2] Believed to be the first commercial cultivar with uniform color.[1]

One parent of 'Allred' was 'Bison' and subsequently, 'Allred' was a parent of 'Sioux'. Our seed originated as USDA Accession Number PI 633453, which was originally donated as accession NSSL 5787 into the USDA's collection in 1961. Each packet contains approximately 20 seeds.

Brand new limited release for 2024. Each packet contains approximately 20 seeds.
