“Oh Ruby” is a segregate of Bill Jeffers’ WMD line with parents Cherokee Purple x Summerpink F1. It has the rare combination of pink flesh with the gene for high crimson evidenced in the crimson gel. Have you ever seen a more beautiful tomato? Lovely pink, perfect shape, utterly smooth flavor (which I prefer), and that wicked “Oh Ruby Don't Take Your Love to Town” crimson gel. This is a really wonderful tomato. I believe that this one is my very favorite of all of Mr. Jeffers' crosses and growouts.
Mr. Jeffers has kindly allowed me to name this segregate, which I have grown from F5 to F7, and will continue to pursue. Next year I will have better photos…the ones I took originally unfortunately reflect the wrinkled nature a tomato gets while ripening on a tray indoors during a Polar Vortex in November.
NOTE: Limited stock.
NOTE: Developing line at F7.
