Sgt Pepper’s Tomato
Sgt Pepper’s tomato is a member of the antho family. Plants produce the most beautiful oxhearts that are literally black on the top and deep red on the bottom end. The amount of anthology can vary depending on the level of exposure and time of year.
Sgt Pepper’s tomato vines are very skinny with wispy leaves. They can be as tall as 6 feet. Plants produce a high quantity of 3-6 ounce fruits that begin to ripen about 80 days after transplant. Proper staking is required! It is a sweet tomato with a hint of earthiness. There is plenty of meat too! These are perfect for fresh eating, garnishing, cooking, drying and a necessity for market sales. Its beauty and taste make it quite qualified to be in my future gardens.
I really liked this tomato. In 2021 I it for the first time and grew only 1 plant. I staked the vines to 2 leaders and it grew tall and skinny, with tons of flowers. Although all the flowers didn’t set, it still produced plenty. The fruits were gorgeous and I got a few larger fruits. Taste was good. I will be growing again in 2022. That’s saying a lot because only the best get to come back to my garden. For reference my favorite grow every year tomatoes are Brandywine, Cherokee Green, Armenian, and Spudakee Purple.
