George Detsikas Italian Red
George Detsika’s Italian Red
George Detsikas Italian Red tomato is a very memorable one for me. Simply put, it has everything I love in my tomatoes! It is said that the fruits could be heart or beefsteak shaped. Mine are just in between, more like blunt hearts.
George Detsikas Italian Red Tomato Plants
George Detsikas Italian Red tomato vines are about 5 feet tall and produce a good sized crop of oblong to heart shaped tomatoes, that can reach 2 lbs! Most of mine were about 14-24 ounces. Many were more than one pound! What I also like about this variety, is that it’s rather early. My vines started ripening around the 75th day after transplant. It was one of my first large tomatoes to ripen.
George Detsikas Italian Red Tomato Taste
George Detsikas Italian Red tomato has a really good old fashioned flavor. There is a nice balance of sweets and zings. That’s not all though! This tomato is very pleasing and refreshing. It has just enough delicious juice and meat to make it perfect for a sandwich. George Detsikas is a great choice for fresh eating and fresh sauces. To me, it’s a total winner! Try a few seeds and get back to me, letting me know what you think…
