65 days, semi-determinate — Also known as "Spark's Earliana," it is an extra early variety, as the name implies. Its plants usually reach about two feet in height and tend to sprawl if not supported. However, vine growth can vary greatly depending on the climate and conditions. The fruit are bright red in color, five to six ounces in weight, set in clusters of six tomatoes or more, and are quite tasty.

'Earliana' as a testament to its desirable attributes, is one of the oldest named commercial varieties still in wide circulation and use. It was introduced in 1900 by Johnson & Stokes of Philadelphia. The original stock was produced by George Sparks of Salem, New Jersey and is reported to have been selected from a single plant found in a field of 'Stone'.[1,2] Each packet contains approximately 20 seeds.
