The Letter of the Day is D: “D” is for the Tomato Delicious

Delicious is a geat tomato that most of never heard of. It is known also as Burpee Delicious in some circles. In my garden it produced reliably and for a long time. The fruits were large and a beautiful dark red. This is good tomato for canning and hamburgers. Yummm. Below is the description from my website.

An excellent slicer, with most fruits over 1 pound – many 2 to 3 pounds – and still holds the world record of 7+ pounds for a single fruit! Produces smooth and solid fruits that seldom crack, with small cavities, nearly solid meat, and excellent flavor. Developed from Beefsteak after 13 years of careful selection. This is a very reliable tomato, not unlike Rutgers although Delicious gets considerably larger. Alas, I have no peppers that start with “D” today
