In the past few years, a couple of seed merchants have incorrectly been claiming that 'Hillbilly' is also known as "Flame." According to our friend, the late Dr. Carolyn Male, this is false. Although there is a tomato variety called 'Flame', it is a relatively newly released (circa 1984) bi-color. Originally introduced as "Olympic Flame," it was quickly renamed "Old Flame" due to trademark claims, and over the years, the name has become commonly shortened to simply "Flame."
'Hillbilly' is reportedly an heirloom variety from West Virginia. Each packet contains approximately 20 seeds.
