Early Detroit Certified Naturally Grown Seed

67 days, indeterminate — 'Early Detroit' fruit are firm and juicy, beautifully bright-pink in color, two to four ounces in weight, globe-shaped, with a good flavor and a sweet aftertaste.

Bred by Mr. Rosendahl of Ft. Leavenworth, Kansas and released by the D. M. Ferry Seed Company in 1909.[1,2] Our seed originated from USDA GRIN accession number PI 355097. An interesting historical fact is that 'Gulf State Market' was found by Walter Richards of Crystal Springs, Mississippi as a single plant in a field of 'Early Detroit' tomatoes in 1917. Each packet contains approximately 20 seeds.
