75 days, indeterminate — The regular-leaf plants of 'Globonnie' are vigorous and productive. Their fruits are deep-globe shaped, red colored, three to eight ounces each with a mildly tart, slightly sweet classic red tomato flavor. Excellent for fresh eating as well as processing.
Bred by T. F. Ritchie and crew at the research laboratories of the horticulture division at the Dominion Experimental Farm in Ottawa, Canada 'Globonnie' is a stabilized cross between 'Livingston Globe' and 'Bonny Best'[2,3] and introduced in 1938. Our original seed sample was USDA GRIN accession number PI 121665. During our early grow outs, we did observe a small percentage of plants that produced larger, more oblate-shaped fruits. We will continue working to cleanup this variety over the coming years. Each packet contains at least 20 seeds.
