Red, White and Big

This spring I had purchased most of my seeds from Southern Seed Exchange.  I've been pretty pleased with what's come up so far.  About a month after ordering I finally got my Baker Creek catalog and decided to pick up a few things here and there.  Since I'd already picked up 6 varieties of tomato, I wasn't sure I needed to order another tomato from Baker Creek.  

I sure am glad I did.  I chose BC's German Red Strawberry .

Big, flavorful are shaped like a giant red strawberry.  Well, that sounded interesting to me.  Sold!

These guys are HUGE!  


 They cluster together and are very prolific.  



SM likes the taste really well.  They are pretty meaty and don't have a lot of seeds.




This one is a keeper!
