70 days, determinate — The regular leaf plants of 'Starfire' are compact, early maturing, and very productive. Its fruit are oblate shaped, weigh eight to ten ounces, and are bright-red color. It is an excellent beefsteak-type slicing tomato for gardeners looking for fast production.
Developed by Dr. Charles Walkof at the Morden Experimental Farm in Manitoba, Canada and released in 1963. It was bred to excel in the Canadian Great Plains but does well in other areas. Here in Oregon it was one of the most prolific and healthy looking varieties in our 2007 grow out. Our original source seed was from USDA, ARS accession number PI 302990. Each packet contains approximately 20 seeds.
